and the battle of Waterloo in which
he displayed so much ot his cour
age but was finally beaten, places
him among the first class of the
world's greatest commanders. Na
poleon was placed at the head of
the best troops Europe ever saw,
at the age of twentysevcu. He was
a noble genius and all his soldiers
loved him. He was so noble great
anb bold, that I could not describe
his greatness, unless I would say
there never was or never will be
any grcatar. His broad nostiils
seemed formed to give expression
and escape of scornful anger. He
was never beaten in any battle but
oue(Vatcrloo)and was his fatal
one, says one of our best author
ities. He and bis forces fought a
gainst the whole of Europe, fought
against the greatest Generals in
Europe and was never beaten by
any Generals save The Duke of
Wellington and Bluoher at Water
loo. Napoleon rose from a poorboy
to one of the Greatest men Europe.
Jtlc rose to be Emperor of France
and" had command of all the French
army. I will mention one occasiou
when he stood amoug his and said,
"If there be a man among you who
would kill his Emperor, his Gen
eral, let him do it now."The words
"Long live the Empeior," buist
forth from every hp. It showed that
they all loved hitn. It was thecour-
agc,tlic gcnius,tho nobility in the
man that made him great, that's
why I liked the book.
