The story of Napoleon
This epic 3-part BBC Napoleon documentary sees Andrew Roberts retrace the footsteps of Napoleon Bonaparte to learn about the life of the legendary French leader.
With access to a unique archive of personal letters, historian Andrew Roberts brings the story of Napoleon vividly to life.
