But I AM Napoleon!

I’ve been learning quite a little bit about the mad egoist, much of what will not be useable for Empty Horizon. However, it does beg the question:

How did Edmond Dantes avoid conscription? Fernand was conscripted. Hell, everyone was conscripted, unless you were ill, disfigured, or could buy your way out.

Or unless Dumas didn’t want you conscripted. 🙂

Well, two books on Napoleon, and I’ll be looking for a good book on historical Marseilles. Got one?
