About the Author:

Albert Marrin is a much-decorated historian and writer whose most recent book, Terror of the Spanish Main, was called "addictive reading" in The Horn Book. He lives in Riverdale, New York.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 8-12-- An outstanding book about Napoleon and his era. As the title indicates, Marrin--while not neglecting Napoleon's other accomplishments--focuses on his subject's military genius, with thorough descriptions of weapons, campaigns, battles, and opponents such as Nelson and Wellington. He gives a balanced analysis of Napoleon, does an excellent job of putting things in context, and provides a wealth of detail. Marrin's study is truly fascinating, not merely educational; it should become the definitive work on this period of French history. McGuire's Napoleon (Chelsea, 1986; o.p.), while adequate, is less challenging and less interesting. --Ann W. Moore, formerly at Lane Road Library, Columbus, OH
