    Oof. This book was quite the long read. I really didn't know much about Napoleon III before this book other than that he was responsible for modernizing Paris. There were a lot of points in the book where I went in search of additional information because the story was so fascinating. ...

    This provided quite a lot of information on an otherwise obscured portion of French and European history-the Second Empire and Napoleon III. Louis Napoleon and his Empress Eugenie oversaw the recreation of a modern Paris, the creation of the Suez Canal, the expansion of the French educ...

    The author is more interested in other subjects within the book the the biography titled subject. It?s also too old fashioned a bio with no general historiography of the time period to create context. ...

    Schom's book should be interesting, and at the outset, he sets out his intention to redeem (from a historical memory that has regarded him as little more than a bumbler with the good fortune to inherit the Bonaparte legacy) the man who, more than anyone else, made modern France. Unfort...

    I have been waiting for a new book about Louis Napoleon to come out for a few years now and was pleased when I learned this book was to be published. It was worth the wait. Schom's style is clear and he takes time to explain the events surrounding Napoleon III in a manner that is easy ...
