      In The Wars Against Napoléon, French retired four-star General Michel Franceschi and Ben Weider, president of the International Napoleonic Society, describe his foreign and military policies, centering on the French emperor’s desire for peace and explaining that he was forced to defend revolutionary France against the perpetual threats posed.

Cairnes' extensive annotations, this book serves not only historical interest, but also continues to be relevant to military, political, and even commercial : Napoleon Bonaparte.
