"This book is not intended to be a biography, but rather it seeks to provide a basis for study of Napoleon's life and career, set against the events which he directly influenced. It should act as an introduction to the subject for the interested layman, the student, or the military enthusiast. The appendices give a chronology of important dates and concurrent events in Napoleon's ti m e , plus some suggested books for further study. Because Napoleon was a military man using military means impose his will, the Napoleonic age is inevitably linked with armies and warfare. A complete section of this book is devoted to the so l d i e r s an d armies of the period with examples of the uniforms, equipment, and types of soldier and tactics."
