Napoleon the Great

The life and times of Napoleon is a fascinating story. Having nearly completed the book, I have enjoyed learning about his life and accomplishments both good and bad.

Sometimes all of the nitty gritty war details about this and that battle can be cumbersome to read. The who, when and where are time consuming and sometimes a bit boring to read through.

During that period of history, the casualties of war were terrible. Many battles resulted in tens of thousands of deaths, sometimes the majority of fatalities resulting from disease, infections, starvation or even freezing to death.

With less than one hundred pages of the in total eight hundred page book remaining, I have only two chapters to go: Waterloo and St.Helena.

The actual Waterloo battle grounds are not far from where I live, only 180 kilometers, and I will most certainly be making a visit sometime soon to witness the area in person.
