PART 1 OF 2
The Little Corporal, the Ogre of Corsica, the Usurper… there are many names for Napoleon Bonaparte, both to castigate and to pay tribute. Even today, his character and the impact of his reign remain under debate. But all agree that the mark he left on his time and on future generations is significant. Napoleon is undoubtedly the archetype of the great man who changed the world. A man with ambition and outsized charisma. A man who will rise from General, to Consul to Emperor. His legacy, territorial, political, legislative, institutional, on French society and the world is unmatched.
Since such a complex destiny cannot be explored in only 46 pages, Napoleon is the first series in several albums in the collection "They made history." This first volume focuses on the 1793-1799 period, scripted by the great Noël Simsolo and under the gaze of reference historian Jean Tulard, portraying the first military campaigns of the future Emperor: from the Siege of Toulon up to his return from Egypt.
