Or, why I hope Napoleon Bonaparte is stepping on a Lego in hell.
If you wrote school history textbooks, perhaps we wouldn't be condemned to repeating historical events quite so frequently. Thank you for this marvellous summary of a dreadful individual.
The fact that I learned more about French and American history through your post and not from required history classes in middle school means that I’m making my nieces read your articles to to make sure they understand what they’re being taught.
In all seriousness though, I hope you tackle Thomas Seymour. No one talks about that crapwad much.
Fantastic as always. Fantastic-er, even! Loved it, thank you.
Just found your newsletter via today's Shout out thread. This is glorious. You've got a new subscriber.
Thank you! This is the fun way to learn European history.... (which I never learned in US high school)
Je déteste Napoléon!
