Trafalgar gives to a familiar story a whole new dimension.”
LUDOVIC KENNEDY

“A naval history in the grand manner, Alan Schom’s Trafalgar is fully worthy of Samuel Eliot Morison in his prime. [His] depiction of character are riveting. This is an epic for our season.”

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“A first-class reconstruction of Napoleon’s final campaign.”
Publishers Weekly

NAPOLEON BONAPARTE.

“A rip-roaring yarn . . . a vast dramatis personae of emperors and princesses, marshals and bishops, mistresses and murderers . . . Napoleon does, as it claims, present the whole Napoleon, the public and the private face. . . . Schom has a lively style, and a neat turn of phrase . . .”
ROBERT GILDEA, New York Times Book Review

“Meticulously researched . . . Schom presents a rounded portrait not only of Napoleon, but also of the principal figures of his extraordinary life . . . and brilliantly presents Napoleon’s life while appropriately deflating his legend.”
DAN WICK, Washington Post Book World

“Superb. Mr. Schom has achieved every historian’s dream; using exemplary scholarship to write a page-turning bestseller.”
LEN DEIGHTON, novelist

“This biography by Alan Schom will shake the Napoleonic clientele—and for good reasons, too.”
DAVID CHANDLER, The Campaigns of Napoleon

“A darkly nuanced biography. . . . In Many ways, Schom’s strengths as a historian match those of his protagonist. . . . Schom reveals a tactical mastery of the events of Napoleon’s Life, calling to mind the emperor’s grasp of terrain. His book is bold in scope, and . . . his salvos are devastating.”
ED VOVES, Philadelphia Inquirer

“A badly needed comprehensive, one-volume life. . . . [Napoleon] does a magnificent job of covering the full sweep of Napoleon’s career.”
JOHN MAXWELL HAMILTON, Chicago Tribune

“Powerful.”
JOSEPH LOSOS, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

THE EAGLE AND THE RISING SUN, THE JAPANESE-AMERICAN WAR, 1941-1943

“This book is a fascinating example of history as it ought to be. Written over half a century after the events described, the author has had access to a mass of documentation and is able to indulge in hindsight. He does so with objective circumspection. Cutting through the bureaucratic platitudes and facile personal excuses of the time to reveal the true facts as they really were. It will be upsetting to some and infuriating to others who previously glorified in considerable myth. But analytic truth is a very convincing thing, and the readers will be gripped.”
SIR HENRY LEACH, ADMIRAL OF THE FLEET, FORMER FIRST SEA LORD

"From time to time, we are privileged to be given extraordinary insights into the history of our age....In the grand tradition of Barbara Tuchman's The Guns of August....[t]his volume is one such occasion....[Schom] has given us new insights, refreshing assessments, and trenchant judgments on those [leaders] who made history in their time, and made our world what it is has become today....Above all, Alan Schom has given us history in its most precise form--readable and relevant....It is the duty of historians, from Herodotus to the present day, to recall the events and leaders who made a difference in their time. Alan Schom has done so, with vigor."
REAR ADMIRAL THOMAS F. MARFIAK, US NAVY (RETIRED)
