“The basic lesson of 1805–7 was that not only must the three eastern monarchies unite but the Russian army must already be positioned in central Europe when military operations began.”
Dominic Lieven, Russia Against Napoleon: The Battle for Europe, 1807 to 1814

“one-quarter of the world’s land surface changed hands between 1876 and 1915,”
Dominic Lieven, The End of Tsarist Russia: The March to World War I and Revolution

“In March 1812 proposals were hatched to unite all the reserve units of the ‘second line’ into three reserve armies. In time these reserve armies would be able to reinforce Barclay, Bagration and Tormasov. In the event that the front-line armies were defeated or forced to retreat, they would be able to fall back under the cover of these rear formations.41 This plan never came to fruition and in reality reserve armies never existed in 1812. One reason for this was that Napoleon advanced more quickly than anticipated and the Russian reserve units were forced to decamp before they could form such armies.”
Dominic Lieven, Russia Against Napoleon: The Battle for Europe, 1807 to 1814
