Jacques Macé: Le général Gourgaud

2006mac+At last we have the volume all students of Napoleon on Saint Helena have been waiting for: a detailed, carefully researched biography of General Gourgaud. Jacques Macé, specialist on all things Helenian, is the first ever biographer of this key figure for the Saint Helena episode and for this work he had access to the private family archives. We are given a full-colour picture the bold, impetuous, sincere, warm-hearted general who remained throughout his life devoted to the emperor.
