The End of Glory

Munro Price

  • The dramatic story of the two years that led to Napoleon's abdication in April 1814
  • The crucial years in which Napoleon lost his empire - and ultimately his control over France itself
  • Draws on previously unused archival material from across Europe to shed fascinating new light on Napoleon, Metternich, and in key figures of this pivotal moment in European history
  • Investigates why Napoleon rejected the offers of compromise that were offered at this time, gambling instead on total victory or utter defeat
