Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) first published his influential biography on Napoleon in 1827. The work represents an important contemporary contribution to the study of France during the Napoleonic Era. Sir Walter Scott had the advantage of visiting the field of Waterloo, and of conversing with officers engaged in the battle -thus his narrative may be accepted as essentially accurate. The British government had granted him free access to archives dealing with Napoleon's exile in St. Helena.
