Who reads Napoleonic literature?
Sir Anthony O’Reilly, that’s who.
Executive Chairman of Independent News and Media, Sir Tony has just written an excellent review of Adam Zamoyski’s “1812: Napoleon’s Fatal March On Moscow” for the NZ Herald.
I’m currently reading it as well and enjoying it very much. Zamoyski really drags you into the morass of egos, betrayal and determination which lead to Napoleon’s march into Russia and which, in turn, lead to one of the greatest tragedies in European history.
