Mark Gerges of the Military History Department at the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth discusses the influence and accomplishments of Napoleon Bonaparte.

More than any other leader, Napoleon is seen by many as the paradigm great commander. Gerges examines the “real” Napoleon, who often belies the English-speaking world’s stereotype, and surveys his military campaigns to explain what made him a great commander and why he remains relevant today.

The event is the fifth in the Great Commanders series. Co-sponsored by the Command and General Staff College Foundation, Inc.
