Editorial Staff

The History Channel will be airing an episode of Investigating History on Dec. 20 (10PM ET/PT), which will feature Ben Weider (an internationally known Napoleonic scholar, and father of Armchair General Magazine publisher, Eric Weider).  The debate over whether Napoleon was murdered, or died of natural causes will be the subject of the episode.  Ben Weider has written a best-selling book called "The Murder of Napoleon" which shows he was poisoned by arsenic. 

Investigating History will be exploring all sides of this fascinating case.
