The Hundred Days

Returning from his exile on Elba, Napoleon encourages French forces to fight with him once more as leader, and to discard their loyalty to the French king who had exiled him. His force of 125,000 met a combined Allied force of over 200,000, and was defeated by guile, cunning and brilliance in battle. Describing the events using first-hand sources Guedalla transports the reader vividly into Napoleon’s final hurrah. ‘The Hundred Days’ is a brilliant history of the one of the most dramatic episodes of 19th century history that culminates in the Battle of Waterloo.
