Surrender of Napoleon
The Capture of the Emperor After Waterloo
- Napoleon had little choice other than to surrender to the British; better that than fall into the hands of the Bourbons. He wanted to be allowed to go to America, or alternatively be allowed to retire to live in England as a country gentleman. Captain Frederick Lewis Maitland of HMS Bellerophon had different orders! This book is Maitland's own account.
