A mere 100 days passed between Napoleon's escape from exile on Elba and his catastrophic defeat at Waterloo. How was it possible for him to rise like a phoenix and propel a beleaguered Europe once again into total war? Schom answers that question in this sharply characterized portrait of a turbulent era in European history. Halftones and maps.
