MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS BOOK

rating systemrating systemrating systemrating system

Whether one agrees with what he did or not, one can’t but recognize that Napoleon‘s character, life, and achievements are like a humongous fresco.
However, it ended in a final disaster two centuries ago,  on June 18, 1815. That’s the setting for a fresco of similar proportion: The Last Campaign of Marianne Tambour, where everything is lived and retold through the eyes of two extraordinary women. Some may think that women being part of the army is a modern fact. It is not. And Ebsworth chose to give voice to two of them. Unusual and brilliant.
