The Rose of Martinique: A Life of Napoleon's Josephine

By: Andrea Stuart

Price: £17.50

Publisher: UK, Macmillan: 2003

Edition: 1st Edition

Sellers ID: 03824


With the dismissive epigram ' Not tonight Josephine ', history has relegated Napoleon's empress to the role of mere boudoir distraction.

Edition: 1st Edition

Sellers ID: 02407


The MIG-21 has been built in greater numbers than any other warplane of the period since World WarII, although when it first entered service with the Soviet air forces in the 1950s it was dismissed rather scornfully as a useful but highly limited clear-weather interceptor.
