The Road to St Helena: Napoleon After Waterloo
Napoleon's incredible career went through a number of distinct periods. Much has been written about his rise to power, his time as leader of France, his ultimate defeat at Waterloo and his exile on St Helena. But the short critical period of his fall from power, the few months in 1815 between Waterloo and his arrival on St Helena, has received less attention. J. David Markham's gripping new study focuses on this, Napoleon's last journey, and the final dramatic episodes in his fateful life.
