At the gates of Moscow, Napoleon's Grand Army prepares to enter in triumphal procession. But what it finds is a city abandoned by its inhabitants - save only the men who emerge to fan the flames as incendiary fuses hidden throughout the empty buildings of Moscow set the city alight. For three days Moscow burned, while looters dodged the fires to plunder and pillage.

Napoleon's felttog i Rusland i 1812, det så tragisk mislykkede russiske felttog, Napoleon's store militære og politiske fejltagelse. Bogen bygger på udpluk fra krigsbeskrivelser af de overlevede, hvordan det blev opfattet og oplevet af de deltagende selv. Det russiske felttog er "one of the great disasters of military history. The story is as dramatic as it is massive in scale: vast, but steadily dwindling, army corps marching ever eastwards in repeated attemps to come to grips with an elusive foe; huge disasters covered, as the weary columns trudge along seemingly endless roads. An the final destination? the most exotic and least known of Europe's capitals. In this enthralling day-by-day, sometimes hour-by-hour, narrative the author skilfully blends the memoirs and diaries of more than a hundred eyewitnesses"

"Hugo, the son of a charcoal maker, is an extraordinary independent boy. He needs to be, for he has no mother, and his father is away from home for long strtches at a time. Even though Hugo lives alone, he never has a moment to spare : perhaps it is because of the many happy hours he spends deep in the woodland, observing the habits of small creatures and insects, that Hugo knows a lot more about the world around him than his teacher at school, and has a deeper understanding of other people than most grown- ups. His is a special kind of wisdom, that wins him the friendship of Miriam, the most difficult-to-know girl in the school, and leads him by instinct to make for Josephine a present that is so simple and yet so full of meaning --Jacket
