Review: Swords around a Throne: Napoleon's Grande Armee

User Review  - Betsy Balcombe - Goodreads

THE BEST book I've read on Napoleon's Marshals so far. I don't claim to be an expert but have read many books on the First Empire. This is a must. It's where I first read of Marshal Lefebvre's challenge to a friend jealous of Lefebvre's estate and possessions. Very well written. Read full review
