I expected to get though one more this week, but I got sucked into Dan Carlin’s WWI podcast and spent my entire commute listening to that instead.
1) A really fun look into the brief period of Napoleone’s life leading up to his exile in Elba and St. Helena, plays well with ‘Vienna Waltz’ which I posted about last week.
2) I love looking at history globally rather than following a single event, this book allows just that while also providing a little glimpse of the Cathar conflict in France which I haven’t found a lot of mention of but it so fascinating.
In other news, I added a plug in on my blog to display the last few books I have read, so if you need more book-spiration head over there. Link in profile!
