Re. court/high politics, being a political scientist with a specialization in international relations, I did try to bring this angle into Napoleon in America. There are scenes set in Paris (Louis XVIII & court), London (Lord Liverpool, Wellington, Canning), Washington (Monroe, John Quincy Adams) and Vienna (Francis I, Metternich), looking at how each of these players might have reacted to Napoleon escaping from St. Helena and winding up in the United States.

Best regards,

'Treason's Tide', by R Wilson...a really well-written novel about intelligence work in Britain. The author focuses on radical thought in Britain, with the potential to de-stabilise the government.

(His other books about the civil war in Britain and about the Sarajevo assassination are good too).

A couple of recommendations for fiction dealing with the Peninsular war:

Seven Men of Gascony by RF Delderfield
Joseph by Julian Rathbone (Esdaile has blurbed this very highly for its accuracy)
