Novelist Delderfield, dabbler in Imperial trivia (The Golden Millstones, 1965), now swoons over Napoleon as the compleat romantic. The ""cynical voluptuary"" was, it turns out, a softy-gentlest of lovers, protector of past mistresses. He remained a pushover even for the disloyal D‚sir‚e, who married his then-rival Bernadotte, although ""the small flame of nostalgic love that continued to burn in his heart was almost extinguished by the successive cold douches of Bernadotte's. disgusting ingratitude.

Delderfield describes the six most important women in Napoleon's love life, as well as many others. They impacted his life and what he did in his empire. Behind the man who did it all, was a loving caring emperor. These affairs did not last forever, however, and usually ended badly. Overall this book was incredibly enriched with information about this great man. I recommend it for all people interested in history.

  • Upon finishing this book, I was not quite sure that Bonaparte wasn't a nineteenth century Weinstein. At any rate, his singular seduction of women went from naive and clumsy to clever and calculated as his power and confidence increased. His wealth and fame ensured that even the most reluctant of ladies had to eventually succumb willingly to his efforts of courting. But did any, bar one maybe, actually love him? This is basically the theme of the book. The author is being subjective of course, in saying that these belles were only after some of his spoils and the glamour attached to being with him. It would seem this way, that they were only attracted to his riches and notoriety. But this should be kept in perspective while reading. We should also remember that although Napoleon was small, weedy and unkempt, he was also highly intelligent and of strong persuasion with his troops and subjects. A tiny man he might have been, but a man amongst men when it came to leadership and action. The main emphasis of this book is on his romps in the garden of love, but it also treats us to a brief history of his battles on the field, intertwining them with his relationship heists and conquests. The way this piece of non-fiction was written, I was forced to come to the conclusion that Napoleon Bonaparte, conquerer of Europe, was a lonely man, desperately seeking an intellectual equal who actually possessed feelings for him. This is an interesting take on one of history's heroes and well worth a read.

  • Very well researched and interesting book. I learned a great deal about Napoleon and now have a huge amount of respect for Napoleon the man as well as napoleon the emperor/conqueror. I live in France, so it was particularly interesting to learn how much he contributed to the great things about this country. The book itself was well-written and quiet fascinating. I realize that some characteristics about Napoleon, such as his many mistresses, aren't very appealing, but they have to be taken in the context of the social norms of the time. Highly recommended for anyone seeking to learn more about this amazing man and the various loves of his life...the one true love, perhaps, being the very famous Josephine.

  • I love RD Delderfield so of course I loved this non-fiction example of his writing. Like all of his books, it was long. I gave it 4 stars because I occasionally got bored with the events. Obviously this happens when reading non-fiction from time to time. But I learned so much about Napoleon. I found it a great read.

  • Many people have heard of the legendary general, and emporer, Napoleon Bonaparte. But, what most people don't know is about Napoleon's love-life. Delderfield describes the six most important women in Napoleon's love life, as well as many others. They impacted his life and what he did in his empire. Behind the man who did it all, was a loving caring emperor. These affairs did not last forever, however, and usually ended badly.
