Jean-Baptiste Barrès joined Napoleon's Imperial Guard in 1804 and was present at notable events such as the emperor’s coronations in Paris and Rome, the torchlight procession on the eve of Austerlitz, and the meeting of the two Emperors at Tilsit. His memoir modestly recounts such experiences and gives an insight into the everyday life of a Napoleonic soldier who saw conflict in numerous military engagements.
