Food for the eyes and ears. First the eyes. Glen a fellow gamer and history enthusiast lent me the above book, Alistair Horne's "How far from Austerlitz". The book traces the career of Napoleon from the height of his glory as victor of the battle of Austerlitz in 1805 to his final defeat and exile to St. Helena. What a great read, easy and engaging.

Next food for the ears, Napoleon101 podcast. Do yourself a favour, download and enjoy. Join J. David Markham, President of the International Napoleonic Society and Cameron Reilly, CEO of The Podcast Network, for a discussion about Napoleon Bonaparte. Boy, David can talk but oh what a joy it is to hear him detail the life and times of one Mr Bonaparte.
