How not to marvel at the incredible destiny of Joachim Murat?

Son of a modest innkeeper from the Lot, Joachim knows all the glories, all the honors and dies trying to reconquer his kingdom of Naples. Often abused by the Emperor, he nevertheless established himself as the best cavalry leader of the Grande Armée who will be sorely missed at Waterloo. Even his adversaries, such as the Mamelukes and the Cossacks, respect him and show him their admiration.

At Eylau, on February 8, 1807, he commanded the most famous and spectacular cavalry charge in the whole Empire. From the Italian campaigns to the snows of Russia, passing through Egypt and the Battle of the Pyramids, his many exploits made him a legend. An exceptional soldier, he also proved to be an attentive King to his people and a skilful politician often ignored by historians. Was he not in fact the first sovereign to think of Italian unity?

At the same time General, Marshal, Grand Admiral, Grand Duke, King, brother-in-law of the Emperor, Murat's correspondence is consequently abundant. This book retraces the extraordinary journey of this endearing character, through letters and commented documents that allow us to better know the man and his time. Engravings, drawings, notes, decrees, orders and letters trace the life of this extraordinary soldier, as much French as Neapolitan, who died for an ideal.

In 1815, trying to return to the throne of Naples was a mad adventure but worthy of him, worthy of this man of insane courage, sincere and upright character. Joachim could not die otherwise than by a last act of courage, which some considered ridiculous. Today, however, his life, his sometimes extravagant uniforms, his feats of arms continue to fascinate.

This book is also a tribute to one of the most prestigious marshals of France.
