Product Description

"Napoleon and his Guard docked at Golfe Juan on March 1, 1815

 

April 6, 1814, Napoleon was forced to abdicate (Treaty of Fontainebleau) and he was sent to the island of Elba which he received sovereignty. With him, a few hundred soldiers led by General Cambronne accompany him

 

11 months only after his arrival in Porto Ferraio, the fallen Emperor decides to join the continent then Paris that Louis XVIII deserted. On February 26, 1815, in the greatest secrecy, he left the island of Elba aboard the Inconstant and began, as Chateaubriand said, ""the invasion of a country by a single man""

 

The flotilla, composed of 7 buildings goes towards Cannes, that Napoleon had chosen because he knew well this safe harbor, which he had once armed the batteries. On March 1st, the Inconstant appears off the bay of Cannes and the Lérins Islands. A first boat takes the generals on the beach, to meet the great army that has just reconstituted at the call of veterans. Then a second boat appears with Napoleon Bonaparte on board.

Recognize your Emperor! If anyone wants to kill me, here I am! "". The soldiers of the 5th infantry line rally.

 

On March 20, Napoleon arrived in Paris to take possession of the Tuileries. Thus ends the ""flight of the Eagle""

 

This Napoleonic campaign, ""the invasion of a country by a single man"", is the most beautiful campaign since it takes place without firing a shot, without pouring a drop of blood. This strange man has intoxicated the world. It has been published more books on the Emperor than it has been days since his death.

 

Later, at St. Helena, Napoleon confided to his doctor that the happiest moment of his existence was ""The march from Cannes to Paris"", an unforgettable moment when France offered itself to him without fighting, as bewitched ...

 

The Etains du Prince illustrated this landing at Golfe Juan by reconstructing this episode with his Guard, Sailors and General Cambronne, the faithful among his faithful."
