Napoleon

This evening i enjoyed watching the first part of a 4 part docudrama on Napoleon and Germany or what was understood in Napoleons time as Germany. Although Napoleon was a dictator in some sort of way and there was censorship... he was quite modern and thanks to him we have now our metric system, the Code Napoleon, civil service and civil registers, the fact people can divorce. I still find him a very intruiging figure and should start reading my grandfathers massive library on him. For more info on the docudrama go the ARTE website. You can watch the second half tomorrow evening.
