Sent to a military school at nine, Napoleon rapidly rose through the ranks of the French Army. But a brilliant military career wasn't enough. Soon, he had seized control of France - and then he embarked upon a plan to rule all of Europe. Stirring narrative and lively dialogue combine with full-colour illustrations to bring Napoleon's epic story to life. Young readers will be intrigued and excited as they follow Napoleon's remarkable life from a humble Corsican childhood to Emperor of France. Part of Young Reading Series 3 for fully confident readers.
