The Corsican Ogre-Napoleon I
Taco24 on 04/15/2008
|Introduction-Napoleon Bonaparte, born on the island of Corsica, became one of history’s most fascinating and paradoxical leaders. Emerging out of the chaos of the French Revolution, he introduced economic, social, and political reforms which had profound effects upon the European continent. This was a man who demanded loyalty to the state, rewarded ability, and created an effective hierarchical bureaucracy. With his rule, some of the last vestiges of feudalism disappeared forever. The foundation of the modern nation-state was laid during his rule.|
