Memories in-4 °

Fernand Emile BEAUCOUR has published The Letters, Decisions and Acts of Napoleon in Pont-de-Briques, a reference work in three volumes gathering all the decisions taken by Napoleon in Pont-de-Briques, and in which we can follow  the activity of the Emperor who organized his army while administering the country from Pont de Briques. For example, we find there the constitutive acts of the creation of the Grande Armée, prepared for the invasion of England (objective which he had to abandon after the loss of the Franco-Spanish navy in Trafalgar), and all the decisions details taken by the Emperor to administer the country from day to day.
