A Quick Guide To The Napoleon Bonaparte Podcast

If you are new to our podcast, here’s a quick FAQ.

What Is It About?

The idea is simple – produce a series of podcast that provide an introduction to the life and career of Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of France, the man who Chateaubriand, the great French writer, called “the mightiest breath of life which ever animated human clay”. This podcast is in many ways a companion piece to J. David Markham’s book “Napoleon For Dummies“.

    Hi Cameron,

    Came across your Napoleons pod cast last summer. I am thoroughly enjoying them. Although I am only just up to Waterloo. I am throwing out a suggestion for an episode. I think that it would be interesting to talk about the Confederation of the Rhine, the major players, their motives, their military performances, and discussion around the foundation of German nationalism, and how this impacted later towards the unification of Germany.
