Napoleon at the Super Bowl
Garmin will feature Napoleon Bonaparte in its upcoming Super Bowl XLII commercial. I won’t say anything to spoil it, but it will be shown in the second quarter, or if you want to see it now beforehand, it’s here.
My books have been selected by the Book-of-the-Month Club, the History Book Club, and the Military Book Club, and translated into several languages, including most recently Chinese, Polish, Korean, and Russian. Before becoming a writer, I lived in Europe for six years and taught European history for several more at the University of Kentucky.
"Reads like a novel. A fast-paced page-turner, it has everything: sex, wit, humor, and adventures. But it is an impressively researched and important story.” —David Fromkin, author of Europe’s Last Summer
"King is marvelous at elaborating Rudbeck's theories . . . [and] tells his tale with the pace and appeal of a classic whodunit." – Publishers Weekly
