The Allies have driven Napoleon's once-mighty armies back to Paris. This book shows a unique side of Napoleon that other biographers rarely mention.
The Allies have driven Napoleon's once-mighty armies back to Paris. Trapped, forced to abdicate after two decades of triumphant rule. Here is the man who ruled France for 12 years, prepared to live the life of an exile until the Congress Allies defy the treaty they made with him. First, the Austrians take away his wife and child. Then the Bourbons (they learned nothing and forgot nothing) don't bother to pay the pension promised.
