On December 2, 1804, Napoleon Bonaparte crowns himself Emperor of the French at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. It is a hard decision to nail down one or even a couple of days in the year to consider Napoleon. That is why biographers who tackle him commonly find themselves with a brick of a book like Andrew Roberts’s, “Napoleon: A Life.” This biography sets itself up to be a definitive work on Napoleon’s story, heavily using Napoleon’s own writing to dissect his motivations.
