Supposing your world was an advanced Utopia that had eliminated war so long ago that nobody knew how to conduct a adequate defence. Then suppose your solar system was invaded by a fleet of alien militarists...

This is what happened to a certain planet in the Constellation Eridanus - and what its leaders did was to seek a primitive race that still engaged in warfare.

So they kidnapped a band of experienced soldiers - Napoleonic veterans fleeing Moscow through the snows of that terrible winter of 1812.

Captain Bernard of the Imperial Dragoons took on the task. But being a loyal Bonapartist campaigner, he had ambitions that Utopian aliens could not suspect.

The Napoleons of Eridanus is a surprise-filled romp in transposed history...
