This is my entry for the Historical Fiction Contest


8. April, 10th 1809

We were assembled by Napoleon today, apparently Austria decided to rally against us. They got the idea from Spain, I sadly missed that battle, but I don’t plan on missing this one. The people of Bavaria had rallied around Napoleon as us soldiers were all gathering. They profited from Napoleon ever since the defeat, which was, I’ve no clue how long ago. That thought makes me smile, I just so happen to like Napoleon too, I feel smart in these nice uniforms he supplied us. Mary said it makes me look at the more handsome… oh… it’s only been such a little time, and how much I miss her…

                Napoleon gave us a speech, saying that Austria will get what it is asking for! We will NOT let Austria get away with this!

                It’s getting late, I need to rest.
