A Boy Named Sue
In Response To: *OT* The Mysteries of Paris ()

According to Wikipedia, in 1800, Eurgene Sue's father, Jean-Joseph Sue, "was appointed Chief Medical Officer of the Consular Guard, [and] then the Imperial Guard hospital by Bonaparte. For ten years, he succeeded in staying in France and avoiding the front. But in 1812, Napoleon decreed that the Chief Medical Officer was to accompany his Guard everywhere. Sue soon became very sick and was back in Paris in June."
