Summary
Covering the years from the end of the French Revolution to the zenith of Napoleonic power in 1806, this program opens windows of insight into life under Napoleon through the stories of a merchant apprentice, a young nobleman, a beer brewer, a draft dodger, and a war widow. They tell of industrialization, municipal improvements, the standardization of measurements, the new power of mayors to conduct marriages and authorize divorces, and the body of laws known as the Napoleonic Code-as well as of crippling taxation, compulsory military service, strict censorship of newspapers, and the pitiless auctioning of monasteries-as the self-proclaimed emperor traveled from victory to victory.
