Today in History
 
In 1814, Napoleon Bonaparte was exiled to Elba after his disastrous Russian campaign. He lived on the Mediterranean island for a year before escaping back to France. There, he reclaimed his title and ruled for a period known as the "Hundred Days" until a catastrophic defeat at the Battle of Waterloo sent him back into exile. Read why one distinguished historian believes the world would have been better off if Napoleon never lost at Waterloo.
