Let's trail Napoleon's Hundred Days by Pier Kuipers ©CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform


From the publishers:
"There is no sacrifice, not even that of life, which I am not ready to make for the interests of France.” With those words, Napoleon Bonaparte abdicated the throne of his French Empire on 11 April 1814. After the disastrous retreat of his Grande Armée from Russia with heavy losses and the invasion of France by Allied troops, his generals revolted and forced his abdication at Fontainebleau. Napoleon was sent into exile to the island of Elba, off the coast of Italy. It would be impossible for someone who had crowned himself emperor and dominated almost all of Europe for many years to accept such a sedate and quiet retirement at the age of just 45. The remarkable sequence of events that saw Napoleon escape from Elba, return triumphantly to Paris and finally meet his destiny at Waterloo were to become known as The Hundred Days — and that is where we pick up the trail in this title of the Let's Trail series. You can visit Elba or journey within France to Antibes, Grenoble and/or Paris. You may visit Belgium where you will the see the battlefield of Waterloo and relive these events all the time travelling in Napoleon's footsteps.
