SPECIAL CAMPAIGN SERIES: NAPOLEON’S INVASION OF RUSSIA

£14.50

Part of the acclaimed “Special Campaign” series of works intended for serious professional students of military history each volume is interspersed with strategical and tactical comments and illustrated by numerous sketches.
Napoleon’s invasion of Russia in 1812, eternalised in Tolstoy’s War and Peace, has become a byword for the nemesis of overreaching power. Like Charles XII of Sweden before him and Hitler in the 20th Century, Napoleon was to face destruction in the endless reaches of the Russian Empire.
