I am extremely impressed with the efforts of the authors, to bring together an incredible history of the parallel lives during the Age of Napoleon. full of fabulous mini bio's of hundreds of important people that shared the world stage with Napoleon. Mozart, Beethoven, Coleridge, Byron, Wellington, Nelson, Czars, Kings, Politicians, Revolutionaries. what a stunning and immense work this is. I have read many many books on Napoleon, his battles, his Generals, his political career - but never did I realise how many important parallel lives were swept up into his saga. This book is simply wonderful, and I give it my highest recommendation. SB

i liked it very much. Finally i have heard the full story if Xenophon and his brave, careless, curious, wild, greedy, mean but forgiving 10,000 men and their epic journey if survival.

A well woven story with fascinating characters​

i really enjoyed this book. beautifully written and superbly read, i was transfixed. Enough technical detail of the financial complexity to educate, but not to overwhelm. Loved it.
