I also liked the way that the author went into every detail making the book easier for me to go back and review or read a certain topic again. I admired the way Napoleon won battles and was determined to win at any cost. I enjoyed the book, but I just have a different view or perspective than Owen Connelly of Napoleon.

Henry VII Essay 18/5/2012 I think that Henry VII made a great leader, looking at all the key achievements of his here it makes me think that there can’t have been many kings as powerful, clever, and strong as hi. He was great militarily and financially but it is obvious that overall what he found easiest was being a great politician. His achievements of making alliances through marriage show that he must have been an extremely persuasive man to have so many relatives married to princes, princesses, queens and kings in other countries are proof of him being almightily powerful, possibly to the extent that he would never have been able to have his empire struck down. He was invincible in every way and form. Militarily he must have been strong because he kept on repelling off rebelling hordes and to take the English throne in the first place he must have had great tactics, as at the battle of Bosworth he was outnumbered and outgunned in the first hour of the battle yet
