Hi everyone. I'm with the CIE exam board (thanks to my mom's decision). I did a search on this forum and did not find an existing topic so I thought I'll just create a new thread on The French Revolution and Napoleon 1789-1804. I hope we can share resources and discuss everything under the sun about this interesting chapter.

Would you say Napoleon was a despot who craved power or simply a good ruler of France?

Hey! Try the Access to History France in Revolution, Fourth Edition book by Dylan Rees. I used this last year and it helps so much

Hey, I just finished my AS level for the CIE board and I finished those topics. I got a B but I resat it this October November and I hope it comes out better this time but I'm not really sure. Anyway, I followed the CIE endorsed textbooks for my exams. This would be the one:

For the source based paper, I took the international option (and I got an A in that paper. Woohoo!). You can follow the International history book if you're doing that option as well.
Basically, what I've learnt from using these books is that they give you an outline but that's pretty much it. You have to do your own research based on what you get. I did find a pdf for a very thorough french revolution study. I'll try to find it again.
Good luck!

I think he was a bit of both to be honest. Despite having brought good social and economic policies to France, he still made sure that he got credit for all his work. He altered the press and only employed people who supported him but ultimately he was able to bring France to a better place as a country.
