Within the reign of Napoleon still in the living memory of some, American author J. T. Headley took on the daunting task of rehabilitating the names and deeds of the emperor’s right hand men, virtuoso military strategists and men of dauntless action eclipsed only by the brilliance of their leader. Gathered from essays that appeared in magazines in 1846, this striking two-volume work—notable in and of themselves for being the first books published by the now legendary Scribner and Co.—offers an extraordinary and unparalleled look at Napoleon’s most trusted generals, including Berthier, Lannes, Murat, Brune, and Bernadotte, among others. It is presented here as a combined, omnibus edition.
