It is more detailed than I want
Born in London in 1925 - the son of the novelist and educationist Guy Pocock - he was educated at Westminster School and Cheltenham College, joining the Royal Navy in 1943. It is more detailed than I want. I wanted more of an overview than a hour by hour history.
Stopping Napoleon book. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
Napoleon himself materialised at his most magnificent in Venice and in humiliating exile on Elba. There were triumphs and disasters in remote and exotic places, and a Trafalgar in miniature was fought between frigate squadrons in the Adriatic.

After Trafalgar, Napoleon dropped his plans to invade Britain and looked eastward . The Alhambra by Robert Irwin (Profile Books, £. 9).
After Trafalgar, Napoleon dropped his plans to invade Britain and looked eastward instead. The British started rather well, trouncing the French at Maida in their first victory on land in the Napoleonic wars. The medieval palace of the Alhambra (from the Arabic al-hamra, meaning "red") remains a potent symbol of Moorish architecture and Islamic culture.
