This book also touched on the happenings on Santo Domingo, now a days Haiti and where the French army suffered many losses as well as eventual defeat and how this influenced France's decision to sell the Louisiana territory. I have ordered the first book in a 3 part series about the leader of the blacks on Santo Domingo, should be an interesting read--I already have the 3rd part. More to read but that is a good thing.
This book is on one person's WL so I will be posting it, will have to see if it is accepted or not. I hope if not it still shouldn't take long, but really don't know.
