Douze Morts De Napoleon


What if Napoleon owed his glory not only to his conquests, but to his extraordinary bravery in the face of danger? David Chanteranne tells us about these twelve little-known moments, when the most famous of emperors imposed himself as an immortal hero in front of his contemporaries by narrowly escaping death: a plague epidemic that decimated his army in Egypt in 1799; a bomb attack in the streets of Paris on Christmas Eve in 1800; a stray bullet that hit him during the Battle of Ratis-bonne in 1809; a man who wanted to stab him in Vienna that same year; a failed suicide at the Château de Fontainebleau in 1814; or his miraculous rescue by the soldiers of his guard at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Through these spectacular settings, this book revisits, around St. Helena and in a completely new form, the existence of one of the greatest heroes of the nineteenth century and France.
