Napoleon Bonaparte is renowned as one of the great military commanders in history, and the central figure in so many of the events of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars. Throughout the first decade of the 19th century he won battle after battle by wielding the Grande Armée decisively against the other powers of Europe - Prussia, Austria and Russia. Yet his fortunes changed in 1812 when the invasion of Russia wrecked his forces, and Napoleon suffered his final defeat at Waterloo in 1815.

"Like France’s 'Little Corporal' himself, this informative 64-page book is a relatively small package that wields a powerful influence that is out of all proportion to its relatively diminutive size." - Toy Soldier & Model Figure
