Synopsis of The Fall of Napoleon: The Final Betrayal:

A study of the cause and effects of Napoleon’s removal from power and his subsequent murder in 1821. The diplomatic intrigue between Britain, Austria, Russia and Prussia is interwoven with the military campaigns of 1813-15, and the deception which aided in Napoleon’s ultimate demise.

However great his military campaigns, how often he was victorious on the battlefield, Napoleon was destined to be deposed by political connivance and personal betrayal. This important study of the cause and effects of Napoleon’s removal from power tracks his illustrious career through to his downfall and, while doing so, charts the clandestine diplomatic intrigue linking Britain, Austria, Russia and Prussia in the quest for the Emperor’s death.
