"This is an amazing novel of the thrilling and little-known first act in Napoleon's marvelous career -- seen exclusively through the eyes of the 26-year-old Bonaparte, with almost the vividness of actual presence." Set during his first Italian campaign, the book "accompan[ies] him from day to day in the vicissitudes which taxed to the utmost his intellect and his courage, sharing his thoughts, his schemes, his emotions, his lover's agonies over the newly-wed and facile Josephine left in Paris," etc.; incorporated into the narrative are "many of the passionate love letters of Napoleon to Josephine."
