Kauffmann, aint Helena. Saint Helena-History.

Written in diary form, this French bestseller is a gripping piece of detective work about Napoleon's final years in exile on the island of St. Helena. Photos, some in color. The Black Room at Longwood: Napoleon's Exile on Saint Helena, Kauffmann, Jean-Paul. The title is a bit misleading - it's a tale of captivity, written by a French journalist who was taken hostage in Lebanon in the 1980's, and his ruminations on the nature of being held hostage and the loss of freedom. Napoleon's experiences in exile form a conceptual backdrop to the modern Frenchman deprived of his liberty in Lebanon. This is a worthwhile read.
