Between the years 1804 and 1815, Napoleon created twenty-six Marshals of France.
These men, who held the highest positions in the Empire after Napoleon himself, came from very diverse backgrounds and ranged from a smuggler to a Prince.
They acquired titles and great riches but in the end there was only one who was not corrupted by greed or ambition.
This book describes their rise and fall.
