Napoleon the man

And interesting article: "Two hundred years on, the French still cannot agree on whether Napoleon was a hero or a villain."

Thanks, Sarah! It is not letting me read the article (at work on a quick break) but will have a look when I get home.

It is interesting how the French view Napoleon. As we have seen before on here, he is loved by some but not so by others.
