Napoleonic Tourist: Take a Vacation with History

The ultimate military tourist, Napoleon Bonaparte journeyed throughout Europe. With an eye for strategic advantage, and an understanding of the tactical value of the landscape, he demonstrated a unique appreciation for places and spaces.

Today, you too can journey with history as your guide. From the Peninsula to the gates of Moscow. From Stockholm to the Nile. The Napoleonic Era was one of turmoil, change, shifting alliances and treason. Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of the French and military genius defined the era.
