    it took a long time to read four hundred eighty pages of this book but I learnt about Napoleon that I knew before I read this book it seems that all great historical menleaders are intense on their mission Napoleon was driven by history of battles and other great leaders and attempted to follow their plans of action did not realize the wide spread looting that happened to the sacked town after Napoleon left the number of art works take and repurposed to Paris was unbelieveable perhaps you do see that in the number of museums in Paris and all that all fills them on my next Paris visit will have to see his place of entombment to pay honor to one of France's leaders
