Napoleon and America: An Outline of the Relations of the United States to the Career and Downfall of Napoleon Bonaparte (Classic Reprint)
It requires some temerity to add to the volume of Napoleonic narrative. But palliation may be pleaded in recent discoveries of Napoleon's own writings. For the first time the world has been enabled to take a comprehensive survey of his mental development - from its initial stages to its stratified judgments.
The psychology of the most practical of men may now be explored. It introduces us to the struggle of his idealities: to their dissolution before the realities of life, or their permeation of those realities. Historians must now realize that Napoleon was a reader, thinker, and writer, before he became a man of action. From this origin they may develop fresher and truer theories of his epoch. 'Athwart the multitudinous phases of his career, they may perceive when his conceptions dominated the situation, or were moulded by its exigencies.
