Über diesen Titel


After Waterloo, Napoleon gave himself up to the English on the understanding that they would lodge him in a "fairly large" country house just outside London. Instead, he spent the final six years of his life as a prisoner of St Helena, a tiny tropical island in the South Atlantic. More than 2000 British soldiers were stationed there to ensure he could not escape, and the former Emperor and his companions lived in a wind-blown tumbledown house. This is a book about St Helena, an island with a sad, strange history. It follows Napoleon through the eyes of those who lived with him and guarded him, and is also a description of the author's own journey to the island.


The Emperor's Last Stand is a book about St Helena, an island with a sad, strange history, and about the tangle of stories and myths, absurdities and simple facts that have accumulated around Napoleon and his sojourn here. It follows him through the eyes of those who lived with him, who guarded him, who managed only to catch a brief glimpse of him, alive or dead.

It is also a personal account: a description of Julia Blackburn's own journey to St Helena and at the same time a journey through the private memories and associations evoked by the telling of this poignant and curious story.
