Battle of Paris, 30th/31st March 1814

I believe today is the 200th anniversary of the beginning of the two-day Battle of Paris in 1814. The battle would end in victory for the Sixth-Coalition and Napoleon's first exile to Elba.

Please feel free to discuss this below and personally I would be interested in hearing about any particularly good books that deal with the War of the Sixth Coalition.
