    Napoleon Bonaparte was one of the greatest military figures ever. He rose to prominence during the French Revolution, after which he kept on soaring higher and higher until he was crowned Emperor of the French. He then moved on to gain control of the whole of continental Europe, before the ultimate defeat of 1815. Today, his campaigns are studied in every military school, his liberal politics have had a strong legacy worldwide, and he remains one of the most celebrated and controversial political figures in Western history.

    The frontiers of states are either large rivers, or chains of mountains, or deserts. Of all these obstacles to the march of an army, the most difficult to overcome is the desert; mountains come next, and broad rivers occupy the third place.

    Napoléon Bonaparte : un des plus grands leaders n'ayant jamais existé. Un essor irrépressible le mena de l'école militaire au trône d'Empereur des Français, puis à la conquête de l'Europe, avant la défaite de 1815. Objet d'une légende dorée comme d'une légende noire, exemple d'une volonté de fer et stratège de génie, Napoléon a changé le cours de l'Histoire. On étudie ses campagnes dans toutes les écoles de stratégie, sa politique libérale a eu une influence mondiale, et il reste une des figures les plus controversées de l'Occident.

    Découvrir l'intimité des "grands hommes" est décidément une chose exquise ! Dans cette correspondance - ou plutôt ce monologue passionné ! - l'amour de Napoléon pour sa femme Joséphine s'étale sur toute la palette des sentiments. Tour à tour sensuel, exclusif, sauvage voire brutal avant de se nuancer et de s'assagir au fil et des épreuves et des champs de Batailles ! Même à la fin, Napoléon continuera de lui témoigner de l'affection sans bornes à "sa" Joséphine ! Lues par la voix bouleversante de Pierre Fresnay, ces 33 lettres écrites entre 1795 et 1814 montrent l'intimité d'un homme dont le génie s'abandonne - sans fard - à la passion des sentiments ! A tout point de vue, ce livre audio est un document exceptionnel !
