Overview
In Napoleons Glance William Duggan discovers the secret of Napoleons successcoup doeil (pronounced koo-DOY) meaning a stroke of the eye, or glance: a sudden insight that shows you what course of action to take. It comes from knowledge of the past: You draw on what worked in other situations, in a new combination that fits the problem at hand. Napoleons Glanceprobably the first book to link Napoleons victories to Picassos development as an artist tells how 10 great strategists owed their success to coup doeil. All 10 applied it with great effort and risk and no guarantee it would work. But in case after case, we find the same story: How American women won the vote. How General Patton became the most successful Allied general on the Western Front of World War II. How Joan of Arc saved France from certain conquest by England. How in one generation Japan went from a peasant backwater to an industrial giant. How Picasso became the leading artist of the twentieth century. Though there have been scores of books written about Napoleon, this is the first popular book written for the general reader about his military strategy.
