Come and listen to eminent biographer and historian Andrew Roberts talk about his major and ground-breaking new work on Napoleon Bonaparte.  It has been all too common to approach Napoleon as a figure to be reviled, but Roberts’ scholarly and in-depth research (which includes visits paid to St Helena and 53 of Napoleon’s 56 battlefields) highlights some of the achievements of his rule – his astute political genius, his civic innovations during peacetime and the blueprint for civil law systems still in use around the world today.

This refreshingly new take on Napoleon is not to be missed, and will delight anyone who loves history.  One of the greatest lives in world history has found its ideal biographer.
