Awesome! I actually read this one first out of the series and based on it bought the other two. The use of all the actual sources is the best way to write history I think. It really puts you into the minds of the people who were actually there more than any other history book I have read.

Shelves: french, napoleon
The second in his triology of the French invasion of Russia and the least enjoyable. Still and OK read, but tends to drag and could possibly have been added to the first book.
