At the gates of Moscow, Napoleon's Grand Army prepares to enter in triumphal procession.

For three days Moscow burned, while looters dodged the fires to plunder and pillage.

One of the greatest disasters in military history was in the making. The fruit of more than twenty years of research, this superbly crafted work skilfully blends the memoirs and diaries of more than a hundred eyewitnesses, all of whom took part in the Grand Army's
