Comments to eBook The Road to St Helena: Napoleon After Waterloo

David Markham unpacks details about an obscure part of Napoleon's career; his fall from power and imprisonment on St. Helena. Working from sources that include various people, including his physicians, neighbors on St. Helena and reliable memoirs, Markam paints a wonderfully rich and intimate portrait of Napoleon the person (no longer the ruler or conquering general). This is really a must-read for anyone interested in the life of Napoleon.

Over the last few years David Markham has proved himself as a prolific Napoleonic scholar delivering several interesting works. "The Road to St. Helena" is his latest work and it provides a rather fascinating account of Napoleon's last days on the French soil. Author does a good job of following the Emperor after the battle of Waterloo and describing the complex political struggle that unfolded in Paris in the summer of 1815. Although he sides with Napoleon, Mr. Markham is often critical of his inaction (and indecisiveness). Yet he reserves his greatest criticism for Joseph Fouche, who actively conspired to bring back the Bourbons. Markham does a good job of explaining how Fouche manipulated government officials around him into accomplishing his goals.

The author consulted a diverse set of sources, including memoirs and contemporary periodicals, and the book's annex features translations of many interesting documents. Overall, the books is engaging and informative and anyone interested in Napoleon will find it very useful.

David Markham once again delivers outstanding scholarship in this work on the end of Napoleon's career. Most people consider Waterloo the end of the story. This book shows that it clearly wasn't and that there is so much to tell about how and why Napoleon was incarcerated by the British, so much that reflects on the here and now. And again he delivers a great page-turner. I highly recommend this book for the general reader.

I've only read a few chapters, but it's slow going. I will finish it though. At least I will slog through it.
