Napoleon's Ulcer by Robert Richardson
Book Description"Napoleon's Ulcer" deals with the Emperor's health when he was incarcerated on St. Helena. Believing Napoleon to have been healthy at the time of his exile to St. Helena, the author reaches his own diagnosis of Napoleon's illnesses and cause of death. The author makes use of the post-mortem report and the accounts left by doctors who cared for him on the island and ignores memoirs and reminiscences by non-medical writers, which, medically, are notoriously unreliable or prejudiced.
