How do you research this stuff without your brain turning into cottage cheese?

He seems to have taken his Defender title fairly seriously.I have a love-hate relationship with Napoleon, and helping to sort this mess out is the love side.
The hate side is changing the administrative/territorial borders of places like Switzerland every 5 minutes.
Literally a running joke in Eric Flint.The Germans being known as organised disciplined and logical people really is one of the stereotypes that would just be baffling to any time traveler from any period up until 1933 or so isn't it?
