  • Per la prima volta alcune massime sulla guerra e sulla politica di Napoleone sono state raccolte in un unica opera Da questi aforismi, scritti in tempi diversi e perci spesso contraddittori, emerge la figura di Napoleone militare, ma soprattutto uomo politico e sovrano Alcune massime sembrano difendere la Costituzione, la democrazia e la Rivoluzione Francese, altre manifestano il pieno disprezzo per il popolo ignorante e rozzo e l incapacit dei cittadini di governarsi da s Insomma, un uomo contr [...]


  • Napoleon wasn t just a military genius he was also a brilliant mathematian and great writer.And this book gives analysys on his Italian and Egyptian campaign with shrewdness And if you are interested in history, read it immediately.



  • Not actually by Napoleon Selected from his writings I didn t know that and was somewhat disappointed Still a good read.


  • While I love reading source material so that I can make my own interpretations, I found the amount of actual source to be very light There are 78 Maxims which cover 27 pages of this book, the other 225 are introductions, interpretations, and bibliographies I realize that a text which is older needs some context i.e Sun Tzu s Art of War but 200 pages worth of context I believe if you picked up the book and know who Napoleon was, then you may already have context.Maxims were interesting, but I wor [...]


  • I haven t read Sun Tzu s Art of War yet, but I wonder how many of these maxims are similar to or are also in the most well known Art of WarAnyway, there were some interesting tips on trench warfare It was also surprising to realize that trench warfare has been going on before and during Napoleon s time pre American Revolutionary War to World War I It s fascinating that Napoleon thought that trench warfare was outdated in his time.


  • A collection of short maxims, complemented by historical examples courtesy of General Burnod.I read this alongside a biography of Napoleon The Rise of Napoleon Bonaparte and found it fascinating On its own it may be a bit less enthralling.



  • Read it carefully, and you ll understand how the guy managed to grab most of Europe and how he lost it.


  • Very good overview of his art of war, without giving you too much of a headache Where i would start if I was a beginner.


  • Very good most of his maxims have stood the test of time the few which havent have technical reasons he could not have forseen.
