This paper reviews the political career of Napoleon Bonaparte, examines some of his political maneuvers and discusses the debates around his public stance. The paper also explores Napoleon's assessment of his own military career as well as the historical reality of his perception.

From the Paper:

"Napoleon Bonaparte's memoirs offer the reader an opportunity to see how a leader perceived reality after his defeat. Although some may have thought of him as a modern hero whose destiny was to bring the benefits of the French Revolution to the entire world, others looked at him and saw a small cowardly man who was responsible for the deaths of hundreds and thousands of soldiers who fought for his unjust cause."
