    A masterful account of one of the most nefarious deeds of the C19th This book has all the gripping suspense of a Sherlock Holmes story, the mystery of an episode of CSI and the human interest of an episode of House.Trapped on a isolated island a man is befriended by someone who is intent on killing him slowly The tragic figure whose agonizing final months were spent on Saint Helena in the South Atlantic was Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of the French by the will of the French people and a rule A masterful account of one of the most nefarious deeds of the C19th This book has all the gripping suspense of a Sherlock Holmes story, the mystery of an episode of CSI and the human interest of an episode of House.Trapped on a isolated island a man is befriended by someone who is intent on killing him slowly The tragic figure whose agonizing final months were spent on Saint Helena in the South Atlantic was Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of the French by the will of the French people and a ruler who had been crowned by the Pope But that was not how the dethroned Bourbons saw him.For years assassins working on behalf of d Artois, next in line to Louis XVIII the legitimate King of France, aka Monsieur, had been trying to kill Napoleon Ever since the First Consul had refused to help restore the incredibly obese Louis to the throne, the Bourbons had been out to get him In his memoirs Jean Roch Coignet describes how he was poisoned because a would be assassin was not able to get to Napoleon himself Thanks to the care of Napoleon s own doctor, the famous Larrey, Coignet recovered Coignet was just one of the many innocent victims of state sponsored terrorism organized by d Artois and paid for by the Bank of England Various assassination plots were backed by Prime Minister Pitt and a small clique in the British Cabinet Parliament was never told about these criminal proceedings which continued even when England was supposed to be at peace with France during the short lived Peace of Amiens.The method of choice for those wishing to rid themselves of the unwanted during the late C18th and early C19th was arsenic Colourless and tasteless, it could be administered in small doses over a period of time to alleviate any suspicion while it steadily broke down the victim s powers of resistance and disrupted normal bodily functions This is what happened to Napoleon from 1815 to his sad and painful death in May 1821 Thanks to the memoirs of his trusty and loyal valet Marchand and those of the Grand Marshal Bertrand, the victims symptoms can be plotted day by day and month by month Repeated tests on genuine hair samples from Napoleon scientifically confirm the presence of arsenic deep inside the hairs and demonstrate with startling clarity how the former Emperor was given 40 doses of arsenic during his last few months of life.Just as fascinating and revealing as the reason for his final demise, the author Ben Weider, with the help of immense and penetrating research by Swedish toxiocologist Sten Forshufvud, makes a very convincing case for repeated earlier poisonings by arsenic at critical times during Napoleon s life especially during the battles of Borodino, Leipzig and Waterloo It has always puzzled historians why Napoleon was off form on such momentous occasions.The dealer of death on Saint Helena was none other than the comte de Montholon who suddenly appeared out of the blue after Waterloo when Napoleon was at the nadir of his fortune Montholon was a rogue who had falsely claimed to have fought in many battles yet had never seen a shot fired in anger He was also guilty of the embezzlement of funds that should have been paid to men under his command Further in 1814 he had sought a position with the newly restored Louis XVIII Napoleon had so much on his mind such as would he be able to escape to America Would the British grant him asylum that he made one of the worst mistakes of his life and allowed Montholon, a useless criminal arriviste, and would be assassin to accompany him into exile.Montholon was under orders from d Artois and on Saint Helena he was the person in sole charge of Napoleon s wine Several other people got violently ill between 1815 and 1821 Cipriani, Napoleon s servant and friend from his Corsican days, died suddenly and mysteriously while Gourgaud and the Bertrands succumbed periodically to some strange malady Madame Bertrand had several miscarriages while on the island One by one people disappeared or like Las Cases, father and son, left in fear of their lives at the time these illnesses were put down to liver disease or the hostile climate Everyone of the victims had partaken of the wine from the Emperor s wine cellar Gourgaud even suspected poison but no one could fathom out the cause of all these weird ailments.Soon, the only person the sickly Napoleon trusted was Montholon even though his nickname, given him by the other French exiles, was the liar il bugiardo It was with Montholon that Napoleon wrote his final will and it was Montholon who was the biggest gainer of all, a bequest of no less than two million francs Montholon s later memoirs were a tissue of lies and amongst the myths he perpetrated was that Napoleon had contemplated suicide on many occasions and, above all else, that Napoleon had died of cancer.The autopsy carried out by Antommarchi revealed no cancerous tumour and instead it showed the Emperor had become very obese How many fat people die of cancer Obesity is a symptom of arsenic poisoning Further, when Napoleon s coffin was opened in 1840 prior to his remains being returned to France, the corpse showed hardly any sign of decomposition, it looked to the observers as if the Emperor was just asleep The preservation of tissue is yet another by product of arsenic poisoning.This superb book with its scrupulous and meticulous scientific detail proves without a shadow of a doubt that Napoleon Bonaparte was poisoned by a Frenchman a Bourbon assassin acting on the orders of d Artois No one worthy of the name of historian can doubt all the evidence of murder shown in this volume But to this day, many in France and elsewhere refuse to acknowledge the great achievement of Sten Forshufvud and Ben Weider in finally explaining the real cause of Napoleon s demise Anyone who has eyes to see, and the courage to dispassionately review all the evidence will surely come to the same conclusion
