God what a bore.

Drone, drone, drone. This non-entity said this, this nobody said that and Napoleon's bum wiper wrote that. What a yawn.

Dry, dull and tedious accoint of the Emperor's journey from Elba to Paris. Boring beyond belief adding nothing particularly new to the Napoleonic canon. No exciting battles.

This was a bog book. So boring I gave up on it half way through.

The piccies are good though.
