Napoleon and Hitler
Napoleon and Hitler are two of history's most terrible dictators. In this ground-breaking book Seward reveals strikingly close parallels between them.
Each man was an outsider, one a Corsican squireen's son, the other an Austrian petit bourgeois, and at first regarded with .contempt by the Establishment of his time. Although Napoleon achieved power young and Hitler had to wait longer, their political and military careers were remarkably similar. For each the grand design was the conquest of Europe. Each of them saw Britain as a deadly enemy, planning invasions that had to be aborted. Each conquered vast territories in Europe and then turned on Russia, where he was destroyed. Contemptuous of human life, neither would acknowledge the folly of a consuming megalomania. Finally after inflicting catastrophic destruction, each failed totally, his career ending in utter ruin.
For the first time, Seward shows convincingly how Carl von Clausewitz's treatise On War - a penetrating analysis of the Napoleonic campaigns that Hitler read and re-read - provides a crucial link between the two tyrants.
In an entirely new way Napoleon and Hitler shows history repeating itself, and in doing so gives new and unexpected insights into both men.
