In Response To: Andrew Roberts on TV ... ()

Blimey!! I've just watched it again to make sure we were watching the same programme. Andrew stated quite clearly at the start that he admires the Emperor and intended to combat what he feels is a grossly distorted view of him held in Great Britain. (I hope nobody is going to argue that the British have a cool and unbiased attitude to Napoleon.) He then describes the rise of a young 'outsider' to the post of First Consul in what, by any definition, is an astonishing historical achievement. He gives credit where it is due and tackles various atrocities and war crimes along the way, giving an explanation that puts them in the context of the times in which they were carried out - the sort of thing we discuss on this Forum an awful lot!
I haven't seen anything yet that quite merits 'disgraceful' as a description. Napoleon-bashing is so commonplace in the UK that he deserves a counter-blast on our national television. Let's hope it sets off a good debate.
