Napoléon by Emil Ludwig( Book )

419 editions published between 1906 and 2017 in 21 languages and held by 4,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using his unique ability to analyze character so admirably, Ludwig has presented a biography of Napoleon I, that concentrates less on the battles and more on the man: his inner history, intellect, self confidence, energy, imaginative power, clarity of thought, and natural dignity. The time line of this book is from Napoleon's birth in 1769 and to his death in 1821. Along his life's journey he became a uniquely talented man, a great soldier, and a great leader. It covers his heights of power and success: men and country followed him unconditionally, great kingdoms fell before him, and he became emperor. It also includes his extraordinary failings: the damaging French invasion of Russia, abdication, exile, defeat at the Battle of Waterloo, island confinement and his ultimate death

"Otto Eduard Leopold, Prince of Bismarck, Duke of Lauenburg (1 April 1815? 30 July 1898), simply known as Otto von Bismarck, was a conservative German statesman who dominated European affairs from the 1860s to his dismissal in 1890 by Emperor Wilhelm II. In 1871, after a series of short victorious wars, he unified most of the German states (whilst excluding some, most notably Austria) into a powerful German Empire under Prussian leadership. This created a balance of power that preserved peace in Europe from 1871 until 1914"--Wikipedia

Beethoven : life of a conqueror by Emil Ludwig( Book )

18 editions published between 1943 and 1948 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In completing this biography of the greatest of musical geniuses, the author has satisfied an ambition he has long cherished. That Beethoven has fascinated him for many years is evident from the essay that appeared in his Three Titans, published in 1930. But his enthusiasm goes back much farther. Not only the secret of his lofty achievements, but principally the puzzle of the man himself has always piqued Mr. Ludwig's analytic mind and inspired him to further study. The result is richly satisfying full-length portrait, entirely new in its point of view, a powerful picture of a great character with all the conflicts of an artist's soul. The tragedy of the misunderstood genius, the brooding man of sorrows, is a view of Beethoven that Ludwig does not share. He depicts him as an anti-tragic genius, eager to outdo his rivals, to win fame, a Napoleon of the piano, whose life was a chain of victories over every obstacle, whether of his own making or put up to him by fate. Like a great symphony, Ludwig recreates the Beethoven story in an astonishing new manner, showing through conversations and letters, a word, a glance (handed on to us in authentic reports) how his whole work is an intimate confession, with all the sudden pauses and prestos: the whole contradictory world of his dramatic nature. Ludwig shows how this great genius suffered the same conflicts as all musicians before and after him, but how he alone felt small events in a symbolic strength that reappeared in the titanic measures of his music. In all his great works - as in life - he overcome tragedy and ends in victorious triumph, that inspires us more today than ever before
