Napoleon And Hitler: A Comparative Biography

By Desmond Seward
Viking, 1989
319 pp. $19.95
Purchase

A popular retelling of two lives whose superficial similarities hardly warrant this dual biography cum comparative asides. Heavy on military history, with the ghost of Clausewitz as some deus ex machina to link the two men. A facile effort-I, admittedly, find the linkage itself repugnant.
