And once again we are fortunate to have Nicholas Stark back on the show to finish our series on Napoleon and Haiti.
Today we focus on the claims that Napoleon directly ordered atrocities to be committed in Haiti.
Did Napoleon, as Claude Ribbe claims, invent the gas chamber? (We find no evidence for that.)
Did the French troops in Haiti under Generals Leclerc and Rochambeau commit terrible atrocities against the Haitians?
Did the Haitians under Loverture commit atrocities?
And, most importantly, is it true that Rochambeau invented Rock-Paper-Scissors?
