I am neither a military buff nor a historian, but when I picked this book up, I read it cover to cover! The War of the Two Emperors is everything you wanted to know and more about the War between Napoleon and Tsar Alexander of Russia. It is a dramatic account of all the battles, planning, letters, etc that made up a truly epic war. This book also provides a great insight into the mind of these two great emperors, as well as a look at the culture of this time. What amazed me was how enticing this book was, and how the author could make something so boring (to me) absolutely fascinating! I could care less about which calvary unit was sent to gaurd the left flank, and yet it seemed fascinating in this context! I found myself cheering on my favorite commanders and thinking how I would have "done it" in the same situation. What a great read!
