Description
The outline of Napoleon's disastrous invasion of Russia in 1812—the battle of Borodino, the burning of Moscow, and the grinding misery of the great retreat—are infamous. What is much less well known are the background details of the campaign, the vast if ultimately futile efforts devoted to the logistics, and the dramatic losses suffered by the Grande Armée in the first weeks of the advance, before many of the soldiers had even seen the enemy. Digby Smith analyzes Napoleon's aims and logistic plans, and the reasons for their breakdown, with illustrated descriptions of the uniforms and flags for each contingent; minutely detailed Orders of Battle for each corps; plus battle details, casualty charts, and maps.

"A veritable bible on the 1812 campaign—a long and detailed study of the subject that will be difficult to surpass."—Battlefields
