II - Hortense and Louis

Posted September 2nd, 2017 at 03:21 AM by Josefa (Napoleon as a matchmaker)
Updated September 2nd, 2017 at 03:39 AM by Josefa

While Napoleon's first attempt at arranging a political marriage in retrospect can be seen as somewhat successful (particularly by the husband who owed his life to it), the second should have made Napoleon turn away from that business forever.

Armament Production in WW2
