About this title

Synopsis:

When young Julian Wyatt is accused of murder and falls into the hands of smugglers on the same day, he knows his life is going to change. Escaping to France, Julian is captured and put in prison. Offered his freedom if he joins Napoleon Bonaparte's Grand Armee, Julian jumps at the opportunity. Finding the military life to his liking, Julian soon makes new friends and gains the respect of officers including Marshal Michel Ney. After investing Moscow, Napoleon begins a fateful retreat that will lead to the ultimate destruction of his army and his reign. Along the way Julian meets a lost child whom he takes under his care. Will Julian and the child survive the disastrous retreat? Will Julian be able to clear his name and return home? These and other questions will be answered in G.A. Henty's Through Russian Snows: A Story of Napoleon's Retreat from Moscow. Set in the early nineteenth century in Poland, Russia, France and England, Through Russian Snows includes more than 120 geographical, historical, and explanatory footnotes to aid the modern reader.
