Description
Vienna, 1815: As the political leaders of Europe assemble to determine the fate of the continent after defeating Napoleon, the alarming news arrives that Napoleon has escaped captivity. Bonaparte had returned, and it would be just one hundred days before he met his enemies in a final, epic battle.

In Napoleon and the Hundred Days, Stephen Coote vividly re-creates the rise and fall of Bonaparte's empire, and brings to life the characters who shaped it. With the eye of an historian and the dramatic style of a novelist, Coote describes how the path to war became inevitable and how, at the Battle of Waterloo, the fatigued but ever arrogant Napoleon met his match. This is a dazzling portrait of the legendary emperor, whose genius, courage, and tenacity won--and lost--him a vast empire.
