'Napoleon: the song of departure' (Book 1 in the Napoleon series) by Max Gallo

Publisher: Pan MacMillan

Published: 2004


  • Historica
  • Cultural (French)



In May 1779, the son of a prominent but poor Corsican family arrives at a military school in eastern France. Barely able to speak the language and fiercely proud of his Genoese heritage, it will nevertheless take Napoleon Bonaparte just 20 years to become absolute ruler of the country he once saw as his oppressor. Set against the murderous unpredictability of revolutionary politics and the battlefields of Italy, Egypt, and France, The Song of Departure introduces us to the man who would become the Little Emperor.
