Can you believe that there isn't an active livejournal community to really talk about one of the most important and controversial figures in history? I'm trying to get a good one going here.

I am your mod, jessex. This community is meant to be a place to discuss the life and times of Napoleon Bonaparte I, Emperor of the French. Love him or hate him, you can't deny the fact that he accomplished a lot and had a major historical impact.

I encourage just about any sort of posts here. Praise, polemic, fiction, questions, criticism, pictures, theories, talk of the man, his lovers, family, his battles, his accomplishments, his failures. The only thing I discourage is too much "OMG Napoleon was hot I am like so obsessed with him!!111". I'm more interested in your opinions of his lifetime.

Napoleon Bonaparte is The Art of War

Here are some websites that I have found informative:

Napoleon and His Family
PBS Napoleon site
Time Traveller's Guide to Napoleon's Empire
Napoleonic literature site
Napoleon on Wikipedia

French Revolution Resources

...I hope to add more to this list soon; if you know of any helpful websites, articles or books about Napoleon or closely related subjects (his family, generals, the French Revolution, Europe in the late 18th/early 19th century for example) feel free to share them.

I really hope people join and enjoy this community, if you have any suggestions don't hesitate to let me know. Reach me at jesspoggi@gmail.com.
