The second volume of Thierry Lentz's Nouvelle Histoire du Premier Empire series, L'effondrement du système napoléonien begins in 1810 at a point when the Empire seemed undefeatable. However, this period was to see French domination careen inescapably towards destruction as it strove to hold together a rapidly disintegrating empire.
