In a series of 12 volumes "Napoleon and St. Helena, the reef of an empire", Michel Dancoisne-Martineau, director of the French national territories on the island since 1987, describes the ties which bind Napoleon to St. Helena with many before unpublished documentation and illustrations.

On the evening of 14th October, Napoleon saw the silhouette of the island of which he knew little, apart from the fact that it was "very high up and very healthy".

After exactly three months on boats, one always feels a certain impatience to tread on a new island. But Napoleon needed even more patience in Saint Helena as, in fact, everything was administratively reorganised around his captivity. However, thanks to the administrative and management skills of Sir George Cockburn, everything was ready for him to disembark in just two days.

But what was St. Helena like on the 15th October 1815? And why St. Helena?

In this second volume, Michel Dancoisne-Martineau  answers these two questions by collecting, organising and using the reports and the social, economic, and financial data he has at his disposal. Without these prior socio-economic studies, it would have been very difficult to understand the years of exile, and some of the decisions taken in those years which seem incomprehensible today.

In the third volume, we will be continuing the story of Napoleon arriving on the island, and his first fifty-three days spent with the Balcombe, at the Briars.
