At the field of Waterloo in 1815, no less a battle ended once and for all the ambitions of Napoleon to dominate Europe under French hegemony.

Throughout this period of strife and struggle, which would change the map of Europe forever, Capitaine François fought under the banners and eagles of France, a callow youth at the time of Valmy, a grizzled veteran by the time of Waterloo. His story stretches from the plains of Northern France, through the frozen wastes of Russia, the sunburnt sands of Egypt and to the rotting prisoner hulks of Spain.

François was by his own account a ruthless, fearless fighter but tempered with a passionate and phlegmatic nature- of the many memoirs of Napoleon’s troops, few are filled with such adventure and anecdote.An excellent from the ranks of Napoleon’s army.
