Front Cover
Pickle Partners Publishing, Feb 18, 2013 - History - 272 pages
Napoleon’s campaign in Russia began in June of 1812 and triggered the vast reversal of power away from France, which had started with his accession to power some twelve years before and would continue for decades afterwards. 600,000 men marched into Russia under Napoleon’s eagles, only a fraction would march back out, most would be left frozen in the wastes of Russia.
Lt.-Col Burton undertakes the task of distilling the conflict of more than a million men and many more civilians with fluency and detail. An excellent book.
This book is part of the Special Campaigns series produced around the turn of the 20th century by serving or recently retired British and Indian Army officers. They were intended principally for use by British officers seeking a wider knowledge of military history.
Author — Lt.-Colonel Reginald G. Burton (Indian Army) (1864-1923)
