Douze Morts De Napoleon

€21

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.
