Napoléon by Emil Ludwig( Book )

47 editions published between 1915 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 2,717 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 von Bismarck was more than a politician and a leader: he was the single driving force that turned the disparate states of Germany into one cohesive empire. He then went on to lead Germany and the rest of Europe intyo an age of political peace that lasted from 1871 until the outbreak of World War I. Under his influence, Germany thrived. Bismarck's use of statesmanship to fight for the interests of his country was legendary. As one of the most influential and powerful and powerful individuals in his country's history, [he] became a symbol of leadership and pride for German nationalists. ... Baismarck was not merely a hard and calculating statesman, but a man who ruled by pride, courage, and hatred. To fully comprehend [his] actions, we must first understand his feelings, his motivations and his private life. ..."--Back cover

"In 1938, Nazism forced Zweig into exile. Chess Story, sometimes known as The Royal Game, was the last thing he wrote before he and his wife committed suicide.

How the lawyer acquired his skill and at what terrible cost are the substance of a story, in which, at the same time, quietly but unmistakably, the death knell of the Enlightenment is sounded."--Jacket
