• A detailed look at the intense relationship between Napoleon and Italy during the years 1805-1815.

The links between Napoleon and Italy are too often reduced to its dazzling campaigns of 1796 and 1800. This love story, consisting of moments of happiness, but also resentment, continued well beyond the Battle of Marengo. The story of Napoleon and Italy from 1805 to 1815 is primarily one of constant communication; there was not a single day without two, three or four letters by mail or telegraph, to Milan, Rome and Naples. This permanence in imperial thinking, illustrated the desire to make Italy a model state. Italy was seen as the little brother who should be nurtured with a stern hand, but also with a degree of tenderness. This posthumous work of Juan Carlos Camignani, one of the greatest French specialists of Napoleonic history, this time collaborating with Gilles Boue, historian of the great battles of the Empire, is a real tribute to the beauty of the Italy and the glory of the Emperor. Using more than three hundred rare images, the authors trace the history of Napoleonic Italy and Italian soldiers in the armies of Napoleon.
