In 1815 Napoleon Bonaparte arrived on the island of St. Helena to begin his imprisonment following Waterloo. By 1821 he was dead. During his brief stay, he crossed paths with six medical men, all of whom would be changed by the encounter, whether by court marshal, the shame of misdiagsis, or resulting celebrity. What would seem to be a straightforward post became entangled with politics, as Goverr Hudson Lowe became paraid as to the motivations of each doctor and brought their every move into question. In Napoleon's Poisoned Chalice , Martin Howard addresses the political pitfalls navigated with varying success by the men who were assigned to care for the most famous man in Europe. The hostility that sprang up between individuals thrown together in isolation, the impossible situations the doctors found themselves in and the fear of censure when Napoleon finally began to die.
