Bernadotte.

Could I prevail upon some knowledgable members to enlighten me as to the the current state of literature covering the life of Marshal and later Crown Prince of Sweden Bernadotte? Alan Palmer's biography seems to come up as the most recent survey, I'd be interested in hearing about the most up do date books, from which I can plumb bibliographies.

Josh, got your email!

Alas, I know litte of this subject. The latest biography in swedish came in 2009, and it was a real stinker, a waste of time even if you know the lingo. If you are interested in swedish books I can give you a hint or two, but I think the good books are pretty old.

I did take the liberty to make an search in LIBRIS, which is a library database which contains all books and articles in any research library in Sweden (universities, högskolor, etc). This is what they have on Bernadotte in english, starting with the newest titles: http://libris.kb.se/hitlist?q=AMNE%3A%2 ... is&s=c&t=v.

Thanks for the info! It certainly seems like a subject that, although interesting hasn't been reviewed well in English, French or Swedish for a long time.
