Abstract The year 2015 marks 200 years since the Battle of Waterloo. Using recently uncovered historical evidence and based upon almost a decade of research, this major, three-part series, sheds new light on Napoleon as an extraordinarily gifted military commander and a charismatic leader whose private life-contrary to popular belief 200 years later-was littered with disappointments and betrayals: not least in relation to Josephine. Part 1 examines his military victories in the Italian Campaign, command in the Egypt Campaign, role in the coup d'état that established him as First Consul of France, and leadership of a benign dictatorship. It also includes his early relationship to Josephine and development of the Napoleonic Code.
