After his disastrous Russian campaign of 1812, Napoleon returns to France to find a country under attack from the rest of Europe -- and from within.
With the enemy massing on the shores of the Marne, the reduced forces of Mortier and Marmont turn back towards Paris, and Augereau retreats to Valence. Meanwhile, Bordeaux is occupied by Wellington's men, ably supported by Spanish and Portuguese troops, and the Russians, Prussians and Austrians are converging on the French capital. Elsewhere, Davout has hidden himself away in Hamburg, Prince Eugene's army is trudging across Italy, and Murat is negotiating with Austria to save his Neapolitan throne. Holland is in revolt, Sweden is a threat -- and French royalists are openly declaiming the Emperor's reign over. Indeed, they would seem to be right, for the Allies force Napoleon to admit defeat; ceding power, he is exiled to the Isle of Elba.
However, amid all the spies, lies, rumour and uncertainty, nothing can be taken for granted, and certainly not where Bonaparte is concerned. While his enemies underestimate him and assume he is finished, the man himself is simply biding his time -- scheming, plotting, dreaming -- for the Battle of Waterloo is less than a year away.

'So faithful in its detail and color -- one doesn't doubt the truth of it for a minute -- that scholars will turn to it' Washington Times
It began with The Battle, then The Retreat; now The Exile concludes Rambaud's epic Napoleonic trilogy
