“The harm of the Revolution is to have demolished a lot and built nothing, everything is still to be done.”
— Napoléon Bonaparte

On the occasion of the bicentenary of Napoleon’s death, this small volume finally makes available to the French public a selection of his letters and speeches, true masterpieces of rhetoric and ambition.

The author

Napoléon Bonaparte (1769-1821) has always been adulated and hated, and has left his mark on the history of Europe. His correspondence, surprisingly little known, reveals all the facets of this extraordinary character. In this selection of letters and speeches, the ambition of the young student of the military school, the civic enthusiasm of the general of the Revolution and the rhetoric, contagious, of the first emperor of the French make us discover the glory of the man who upset the Old Continent and the whole world.

Letters chosen and presented by Eusebio Trabucchi.

Strong points

A selection of letters from Napoleon to celebrate the bicentenary of his death.
