Summary

In these lectures, Professor Donald M.G. Sutherland explores the life and times of Napoleon, one of history's most brilliant strategic thinkers. But despite his inarguable brilliance, Napoleon has also been denounced as unscrupulously ambitious and as alone responsible for the wars that bear his name. With his scholarly eye, Professor Sutherland imparts a fuller understanding of this polarizing figure and deftly shows how Napoleon fit into the sweep of history - and how he helped to define it.

Great storyteller

Donald MG Sutherland is a great storyteller, although his voice is a bit unprepossessing. He takes us step by step through Napoleon's career, from the island of Corsica to the island of St Helena. The military and political campaigns are described clearly (although I have to admit I'm still a little foggy about the various German and Austrian campaigns). If you want a good overview of Napoleon before digging deeper into some of the other audiobooks on the subject, this is a good place to begin.
