Napoleon - An Intimate Portrait


Map of St. Helena Island

Map of St. Helena Island

- 17th century

Used as a watering stop for East India Company ships and as a location from which the Royal Navy could dominate the South Atlantic, St. Helena was a mountainous tropical island a mere 28 miles in circumference. The nearest land, the west coast of Africa, was 1,140 miles away. A buoy lost in the South Atlantic, it was hell on earth for a man of Napolons active temperament.
