Comment un homme qui a gouverné l’Europe peut-il se retrouver sur un îlot avec les pouvoirs d’un sous-préfet ? La question posée par Patrick Rambaud dans l'autoentretien figurant à la fin du livre le résume à elle seule. Le contraste est tellement fort entre l'Empire, la Grande Armée et cet île minuscule où vit une poignée d'habitants qu'il en devient un ressort comique:
Le comte Bertrand indiqua de l’ongle un point perdu en mer à côté de la Corse.
— On dirait un puceron.
— C’est pourtant l’île d’E

Patrick Rambaud s'est passionné pour l'Empereur. Dans son style fluide, alerte, il nous entraine dans la débâcle de l'empereur en 1814 puis dans sa gestion quotidienne de l'île d'Elbe. Les personnages sont attachants, le jeune héros, mais aussi le gouverneur de l'île, particulièrement truculent. J'ai beaucoup appris à la faveur de cette lecture sur la vie quotidienne de l'Empereur et sa capacité de travail vraiment impressionnante

3e de la trilogie de Rambaud sur Napoléon. Se concentre avec plein de détails sur la fuite de Napoléon dans l'île d'Elbe. Pas aussi bon que les 2 premiers, mais quand même réussi.

This was nice to read right after my trip from Paris because it made everything a bit more visual for me. It gave a pretty good account of Napoleon's exile to the island of Elba.

Historical chronicle....1815 France, Italy....chronicle of the year 1815 when Napolean was exiled to Elba.

Dry, shallow, lots of French names.
