Latest Reading - finished another book

I like to read three or four books simultaneously along with the Bible.
Napoleon Bonaparte by Alan Schom, Harper Collins, 1997, 787 pages. This is a very thorough book on the life and exploits of the worst thing to happen to Europe between Attila the Hun and Hitler/Churchill. If there ever was a person in history who acted like Satan in the Bible it was old Nappy. Millions of dead, ruined empires, destroyed villages and cities were left in this man's wake. I never understood why so many considered him a monster but this book makes it very, very clear. Worth reading. A real eye opener. The real hero of the book for me was Prussian Field Marshal Blucher. I hope I'm that active and able at 73 years old.
