Campaigns of Napoleon

Macmillan, 1966

Up on the desk--The Campaigns of Napoleon by David Chandler. The leather-bound book props up a few Moleskine notebooks and the Cisco IP phone.

The book puts Napoleon alongside Alexander the Great, Hannibal and Genghis Khan. For nearly two decades, he was without a peer as a master strategist and tactician. For ten of those years he was the arbiter of the fate of Europe and the dominant influence on the world scene. As a brilliant soldier and the creator of modern Europe, his name still stirs the imagination of men and women throughout the world.
