    Just five years after Napoleon died in 1821, Sir Walter Scott - the most popular novelist of the day - published a biography of the fallen emperor. Drawing on privileged access to government papers, it was an instant bestseller, though its critical tone angered Bonapartists, one of whom challenged Scott to a duel. Abridged into one concise volume, the book is republished here for the first time in 150 years; its insights, vivid detail and page-turning narrative remain as fresh as ever.
