PREFACE

THIS year has seen the Centenary of the release of

Napoleon's British Prisoners of War. In that connection these narratives of the exceptional experiences and adventures that some of them went through should be timely in their interest, and also prove useful as a general historical record. The book offers also, I venture to think, a new picture to the great gallery of Napoleonic portraits, and one that, it may be, is less familiar than some others—a portrait of Napoleon as the Gaoler of Europe.
