Napoleon and Doctor Verling on St Helena by J.David Markham

Book Description

Many books have been written about St Helena and its most famous resident, the exiled Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. The episode has been so intensively researched that it is rare for a fresh, unpublished account to come to light. Yet Dr James Verling's St Helena journal is just such a source. Verling was based on St Helena during Napoleon's imprisonment and he was even appointed as Napoleon's official physician. Throughout his stay, this young doctor kept a vivid diary of his experiences. Through Verling's eyes we get a fresh view of daily life on the island and of the suspicion-filled society that grew up around Napoleon during his last years.Received the PRESIDENT'S CHOICE AWARD from the INTERNATIONAL NAPOLEONIC SOCIETY as a 'significant contribution to Napoleonic studies'
