Napoleonic Impressions is delighted to announce a special offer for UK customers to mark the 200th anniversary of Napoleon's death. Author Michael Fass has very kindly offered to send a free copy of his historical fiction novel Napoleon's Drop to the first five UK-based customers who spend more than £30 on the Napoleonic Impressions store.
Napoleon's Drop is set during Napoleon's final years in Saint Helena and features a daring rescue attempt organised by Napoleon's supporters to organise his escape to South America. The book is available on Amazon at £12.50 and has a host of five star reviews:
Threading together the politics of post-Waterloo Europe, Britain, the United States, the Argentine, and the tiny island of St. Helena where the ailing ex-Emperor languishes, the story follows the conspirators from London's underbelly where they are watched by the Government's agents, to the Americans who only recently stopped fighting British and yearned to bring Britain down, to the various factions on St Helena itself, some of whom saw Napoleon as the best hope for progressive forces everywhere. The plot gallops along, sweeping the reader to its thrilling conclusion. A really good read.
- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐, SWE Barran
An extraordinarily good read.
The blending of rich, well researched historical material, covering events across several continents, brought together under an eloquently written and suitably pacy storyline makes this a very decent read indeed. Of interest to scholars of 19th century British /American history, fans of the Napoleon / St Helena story and those who enjoy immersion in well developed and totally credible key characters. A highly recommended read in this, the 200th anniversary of Napoleon’s death.
- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐, Ed Walker
A great story, very well told.Lots of historical detail about his time on St. Helena and an exciting and believable plot. I really enjoyed it.
