The End of Glory

Munro Price

  • Focuses on an overlooked period of Napoleonic history, 1812-1814, rather than the well-trod ground of Waterloo
  • Driven by a compelling cast of characters, including Metternich and Alexander I
  • Whereas other historians claim pride led to Napoleon's inevitable downfall, this book for the first time emphasizes that a failure to compromise a peace treaty with Austria could have saved him from losing his empire
  • Based on original research into archival sources in France, Austria, and the Czech Republic
