What do you get a military despot to help commemorate the 200th anniversary of his comeuppance? Truth be told, it’s a bit late to give Napoleon much of anything, but his legacy is still deserving of attention and inclusion in the annals of history, which is why this Napoleonic Wars Newspaper Book was created and why it remains such a popular gift for history buffs the world over.
The Napoleonic Wars: From Trafalgar to Waterloo is an incredible collection of news stories about the iconic events that defined Napoleon's reign, including reprints of stories that appeared in newspapers at the time those events were actually happening. You can sit back, drink some cognac (reportedly Napoleon’s favorite tipple), and imagine you were one of the emperor’s contemporaries, following along with his exploits thanks to some very dedicated reporters. Those reprints are supported by historical texts that offer up Napoleon’s own take on Waterloo and other documents that help round out the story and provide an immersive experience.
Whether you’re looking for a gift for someone who loves history, a journalist with an appreciation for the past, or a military aficionado who would be interested in Napoleon’s accomplishments and most massive failure, this book checks every box — and it even comes with a magnifying glass so tired eyes don’t have to miss a single, super-important word.
