Napoleon talks about how he was in no way complicit in the murder of the King of France. He would have fought for him if royal leadership had shown some courage.
I am reading aloud: With Napoleon in Russia. Then I plan on reading the memoirs of Napoleon’s valet Marchand at St. Helena. Then I will read (5 pages a day) the Memoirs of Hortense Bonaparte. All three writers 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.
