In October 2008, during a mission in the Ouaddaï (Chad), I found the website “Carré Impérial” to challenge the misleading assertions about Napoleon. Since then, I have been walking in the footsteps of the soldiers of the Great Army and writing my personal vision of the history of the Great Commanders.
