"As stated in its introduction, this book is neither a biography nor a chronological history of Napoleon.A It is an insightful treatise on the emperor's generalship, written by an officer in the British army...The author's assessment is fairly objective: in summary, that Napoleon was an innovative general and the best in the field until the attrition of over a decade of conflict caught up with him.A Recommended." -David Lee, Library Journal, December 2007
Library Journal
"Napoleon as a General is a readable addition to existing studies of its subject." -David Longfellow, The Historian, Vol. 71
