Napoleon Clandestine writings from St Helena
Anonymous, unknown; but surprising, exciting, enlightening: here are the last texts through which the captive of Saint Helena still makes his voice heard in the world, the only weapon he has left.
When the most heavily guarded prisoner in history managed the incredible feat of publishing three manuscripts anonymously in England, making a fool of his jailers in the most beautiful way.
Changing his style from one book to the next, Napoleon deals successively with episodes of his epic, the conditions of his detention and the imprescriptible nature of imperial legitimacy, and reveals his exceptional genius for communication on the only battlefield left to him, that of opinion. He emerged victorious one last time.
