    One thought on “The Fall of Napoleon, Volume I: The Allied Invasion of France, 1813–1814”

    1. This is an incredibly detailed and scholarly account of both military operations and diplomacy surrounding the collapse of the Napoleonic Empire. Mind you, this is only one of three volumes. Great book for those who want ALL the dirty detail.
