Quest for Empire 2.1

May 24, 2021

     Following the fall of Robespierre, Napoleon meets a well-connected member of the salon scene, Rose Beauharnais, whom he calls by a pet name: Josephine. With her help, he wins command of the Army of Italy, and after a brief wedding and honeymoon, he embarks on a stunningly successful campaign against Sardinian and Austrian forces. Text and narration by Dave Inglehart.
