Uncle Arthur & Andrew, Seems to me he's a kind of cross between Anthony Trollope and Tom Wolfe ? Bif

Yep, we all love it now, but wouldn't dare write it. We all seem to want the truth with no frills and then complain there are no frills!!

An interesting article about Napoleon's death and the return of his body to Paris has been published: http://www.napoleon.org/en/reading_room ... 07.asp#top

What impact did Napoleon's death have on the French? And on the British?
Why was the body returned from St. Helena and why did it take 20 years to return it?
What was the reasoning behind choosing Les Invalides as Napoleon's final resting place?
