This is an assessment of the rise and fall of French fortunes within the wider context of 18th- and 19th-century Europe, and the man who was behind them. The book's basic aim is to enable pupils to understand the many reasons and issues surrounding events in Napoleonic France, and the extent of Napoleon Bonaparte's influence on European history in the period from 1769 to 1815. It addresses topics such as the stages of Napoleon's rise to power, whether he betrayed the Revolution, why he was able to conquer Europe, the reasons behind his downfall, and the impact and legacy of the empire he created. Activities and exam-style questions are included.
