This unique and stunning first hand account of Napoleon’s ill-fated invasion of Russia in 1812 is illustrated by powerful colour plates, taken from the simple but detailed sketches made by the author throughout the campaign. Both a career soldier and talented amateur artist, he served, like many others at that time, as a mercenary in the Napoleonic army.
