The Best: biography of Napoleon

Friends and students (I teach French online through Skype), often ask me advice about books. Suddenly I thought that I might as well share with all of you, so this may become some type of memes.

Yesterday, I was asked what would be the best biography of Napoleon.

After a bit of research, it seems the best biography so far is

Napoleon

It is 926 pages long and was published in November 2014.
It received the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Biography (2014).

Then I realized it was already on my TBR shelf!

I also found 2 fascinating lists, with a short summary for each book, here and here.
And I read a good historical novel set in Napoleon’s court:
Second Empress
