Check Out The Napoleon Show!
Napoleon Bonaparte despite his somewhat unearned reputation is one of my favorite historical figures. Recently I have discovered a great podcast aka internet radio show regarding Napoleon's life and historical legacy. Since history is often times written by the victors, in many ways Napoleon has gotten a bad rap, but he was in fact a figure who shaped the modern liberal world. Napoleon was probably the most important figure in turning Europe from a feudal backwater ruled by aristocrats to a society that valued liberal ideals and some degree of equal protection under the law. While Napoleon was a conqueror, he was also a revolutionary. Cameron Riley and David Markham disect every portion of Napoleon's life including his thinking and military strategy in the Napoleon Show on the Podcast Network. Check it out!
