The Apocalypse of Napoleon Bonaparte offers a unique look into the final years of Napoleons life. Following his defeat at Waterloo, Napoleon was exiled a second time, in this instance to the isolated South Atlantic island of St. Helena. There, Napoleons health rapidly deteriorated, resulting in a mysterious death. What was the cause? This book looks to answer that question by examining first hand accounts of the four doctors who treated Napoleon during his six years in exile on St. Helena.
