My book NAPOLEON'S SOLDIER - LITTLE BIG MAN is now ON SALE at AMAZON KINDLE. It includes five detailed chapters on the life of this incredible individual plus a great deal of comment on Napoleonic history in general. Coignet is followed from his time as a child shepherd scratching a living by wolf-infested forests, to his glory days at Napoleon's side in Russia and at Waterloo. It is a story that almost defies belief, yet his literally rags to riches life is true. The cover illustration is provided by my great friend Pascal Cazottes and is taken from an 1886 French publication.
