Napoleon’s resting place

Les INvalides officially known as L’Hôtel national des Invalides (The National Residence of the Invalids). It’s a short walk from the Eiffel Tower and is the resting place of Napoleon.

It’s a remarkable place and one gets the sense of what the French military was like at its zenith – a formidable force capable of sweeping all before it. At least that’s what Napoleon thought… Russia had other ideas, as history has proved it often did.
