1812 : Napoleon in Moscow by Paul Britten Austin( )

17 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Napoleon's Grande Armee waits at the gates of Moscow, preparing to enter in triumphal procession. But it finds a city abandoned by its inhabitants - save only the men who emerge to fan the flames as incendiary fuzes hidden throughout the empty buildings of Moscow set the city alight. For three days Moscow burns, while looters dodge the fires to plunder and pillage. And so begins 1812: Napoleon in Moscow, Paul Britten Austin's atmospheric 'word-film' presented through the testimony of more than 100 of the people who witnessed and took part in the campaign. A large proportion of these close-up accounts have never been seen in English before."--Jacket

1812 : the march on Moscow by Paul Britten Austin( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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"
