Napoleon's Exile by Rambaud
Book DescriptionIn the final volume of Rambaud's award-winning trilogy, we find the illustrious Napoleon as he is rarely seen--in exile, cut off, humiliated, and vividly human. By 1814 Bonaparte is reeling from the debacle of his Russian invasion: the Allies captured Paris, forced him to abdicate, and placed the last Bourbon, Louis XVIII, on the throne. Octave Senecal, Napoleon's loyal aide, tells the spellbinding tale of the leader's subsequent exile and journey south through the angry, mobfilled countryside to Elba, a tiny island off the coast of Tuscany. Napoleon's Exile brings to life not only the general and the ruler but the man--bored by his sequestration, gambling with his mother to pass the time, spearing the occasional tuna with local fishermen, and fretting constantly that secret agents and murderers are searching for him. Soon he is planning his escape, while in France his former soldiers spend their evening drinking to the return of I'absent. They do not wait long. The winner of France's prestigious Prix Goncourt and the Grand Prix Roman de l'Academie Francaise, the acclaimed historian Patrick Rambaud gives us a riveting narrative about one of history's most fascinating heroes, and thus joins the great tradition of historical novels by Balzac, Hugo, and Dumas (Le Point).
