A highly original and critical introduction to the revolutionary and napoleonic conflicts. It illuminates the less well-known areas of the subject, such as the changing atttitude of the French people towards Napoleon, as well as providing a balanced account of the campaigns of Wellington and Napoleon.

Based on current historiography, this book discusses the expansion of France, the extent to which Napoleon was responsible for this success, and the events leading up to his subsequent exile. It also provides a clear examination of each of the coalitions which fought against France.


'This is a well presented and researched book which I feel would give a reader sufficient coverage of the topic for revision at A level or first year university studies. - David McGhee, SATH, Resources Review

Esdaile … skilfully combines narrative with analysis. … Excellent for students, this study also has much to offer their teachers. - Jeremy Black, European History Quarterly, vol. 33, no. 4, 2004
