Christopher Duffy's Borodino and the War of 1812 is a brief, yet complete, chronicle of Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812 and the momentous clash of armies at Borodino. Duffy's book was published in 1972 and his analysis has been supplanted by numerous subsequent accounts. At only 175 pages of text, Borodino and the War of 1812 is a good introduction for readers new to the subject and certainly worthy of Three Stars.
