An extraordinary book written by one of Italy’s most engaging intellectuals. Barbero, historian and novelist, writes novels that double as historical essays. Franco Cardini

On the battlefield, among the troops: even if the narration is crammed with detail and the protagonists numerous, one never tires of reading Barbero, who is a natural storyteller.

Aurelio Lepre

Barbero’s prose captivates the reader.

Lucio Villari

A masterly reconstruction. The discipline and talent of Alessandro Barbero transform The Battle into a unique book, which like a film propels us into the heart of Napoleon’s last battle.

La Repubblica
