The Napoleonic Wars coincided with the first great age of the political cartoon, and Bonaparte himself provided a unique target for satirists such as Gillray, Rowlandson and Cruikshank. This absorbing book assembles more than 300 cartoons from both sides of the conflict to create a year-by-year account from the Battle of the Nile to Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo. Powerful, energetic and vitriolic, they graphically demonstrate how these events were perceived at the time.
