"Tells of the most important battle of Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812, and covers the entire campaign from his inital entry into Russia through his retreat. The battle of Borodino is the focal point and is covered in its entirety, including illustrations throughout and packing in fine detail for any student of the times."
- James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review
"The author provides historical context, profiles the opposing commanders and their armies, and then zeroes in on details of Borodino, including providing a complete order of battle...the highlight is dramatic artwork delivered by Peter Dennis, who brilliantly evokes the desperation of both the bloody battle and the doomed French retreat."
