The fascination with Napoleon as an individual and with the colossal changes wrought by his wars across Europe has continued among historians, and many others, ever since. This guide is designed to provide detail on more than the military aspects of the period, and to cover the whole of Europe.

Napoleonic Europe Summary

Napoleonic Europe by Clive Emsley (Open University, UK)

The impact of Napoleon on France and on Europe was immediate and enduring. He dominated his age as his armies dominated the continent; and no European country was untouched, or unchanged, by the events of these turbulent years. Keeping one's bearings geographically, militarily, politically and chronologically in the prevailing turmoil is no easy matter, even for the specialist, and Clive Emsley's concise but authoritative guide to the Napoleonic age will be a boon to students, scholars and general readers alike.
