Publisher:Amberley Publishing, 2023
'My horse took the force of his sabre, but I was able to hack at his hands... Wounded quite badly, he went down only to try again. I was tired of this game, so I threw myself onto him and staved in his head.' Jonathan North presents an astonishing history of Napoleon's early 'bartering of lives for glory' based on the words of the soldiers.
