1st edition. Not only was Marshal Soult an outstanding military commander and prime architect of Napoleon's Grand Armee, but he was France's longest-serving head of Government and a statesman of great note. His reputation has been damaged by his "acquisition" of art treasures from the countries he fought - a fault not ignored by this book - but this cannot detract from his long and significant influence on European military and political history.
