vol.3:Napoleon’s stay with the Balcombe family (18 October – 10 December 1815)

£30.00

Napoleon’s stay at the Briars has a special place in his story: an interlude of fifty-three days of calm in the epic tale of his life. This break allowed the people involved to analyse, summarise and comment on what had taken place during the journey between Portoferraio and St Helena.

This book tells the story of:

› how the French exiles settled in, on an island where their life would be completely different.

› William Balcombe, a flamboyant and slightly unscrupulous businessman.

› The Briars, residence of the Balcombe family who welcomed Napoleon into their home, and the

infamous Betsy.

› Toby, one of the slaves working on the Briars estate, on whom the spotlight of history was to fall.
