Although Napoleon dominated Europe in 1808, the peace was not to survive for long and ended with Austria’s attack against France in 1809. Despite being defeated at Aspern-Essling, Napoleon rallied his forces and emerged triumphant at Wagra, before turning his attention to Russia which he invaded in 1812, But even the capture of Moscow availed him nothing, with the enemy remaining elusive and the decisive battle unfought. This book tells the full story of the legendary retreat from Moscow, as the force that had vanquished Europe perished in the snows of the Russian winter.
