Synopsis: In the spring of 1814, after twenty-two years, enemy forces once again invaded France. Following Napoleon's defeats in Russia and Germany, the victorious Allies had crossed the River with the intention of putting an end to the long-standing conflict with Imperial France.
This book is the first title to bring together dozens of letters, diaries and memoirs of Russian participants of the 1814 Campaign. Reading these documents we see what Russian officers and soldiers experienced during the final months of the three year-long campaign as well as their joy at winning the war over Russia's most dangerous enemy. We follow them not only through the heat of the battle but also on delightful tours of Paris, which they describe as the pleasure and entertainment capital of the world.
