Napoleon and his parents :on the threshold of historyby Dorothy Carrington
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Carrington's revisionist account of Napoleon's first sixteen years distinguishes and compares two stories. One is the traditional tale derived as much from hearsay as from contemporary evidence, and buttressed by memoirs of the Bonaparte family and their reported sayings. The other story is based on the hitherto unexploited archives of the Bonaparte family and scattered documents, mostly in Corsica, that have remained neglected or ignored.
