Napoleon on Campaign

These are the magnificent works of Detaille, Meissonier, Vernet, Lady Butler, Hillingford and many of the other artists who sought to capture on canvas the most celebrated incidents of the Napoleonic Wars. Through their battle paintings these great artists tell an intriguing tale, of power, greatness, greed and hubris. Each image is captivating in its own way and opens the door to a bygone world of martial splendour.

The rise and fall of Napoleon makes for a gripping, and tragic story, and these great works inside are arranged chronologically in order to let the images do the talking and provide an opportunity to allow the reader a unique chance to revel in the glorious and timeless work of the artists. Gathered together in a single volume for the first time this wonderful book makes for essential reading for anyone with an interest in the Napoleonic era.
