*Bonus* Napoleon: The Film, The Man, The History

Deep into History

Please enjoy this modern classic hit of Rev Left Radio of which I was so honored to be a part of. Out of literal thousands, my friends Everett, Berht, and I delivered the definitive review of Ridley Scott’s Napoleon. The hosts of Age of Napoleon, Rev Left Radio, and Deep into History go deep on the original Island Boy. (Brushing my shoulder off, on behalf of our Triumvirate)

Everett from The Age of Napoleon and Arjun from Deep into History join Breht to discuss Napoleon Bonaparte. Together they explore and reflect on the new film by Ridley Scott, the actual history involved and what the film got wrong, Napoleon’s real personality, the importance of the French Revolution in Napoleon’s rise, the reaction to the French Revolution and Napoleon from the rest of Europe, Napoleon’s treatment of Haiti, Napoleon’s exile and death, and then they grapple with the question of how the socialist left today should view and understand Napoleon.
