Napoleon’s enemies are once again insisting on war.
We recently finished: With Napoleon in Russia. Now we’re reading the memoirs of Napoleon’s Valet Marchand from their time together all over Europe and at St. Helena.
Then I will read the Memoirs of Hortense Bonaparte. All three writers of these memoirs are considered exceptionally honest. All three essentially lived with Napoleon. Then I plan to read Napoleon’s letters to Josephine. You will see that Napoleon is the same person in all of these accounts. I’m doing this because I believe this is important and that our whole present world-in-crisis comes out of this True story.
