"This is a fine English translation of a short, graphic, and accurate mid-level young professional officer's view of Napoleon's Russian campaign. Fezensac was a staff officer from the Niemen to Borodino who participated in the Russian campaign from beginning to end, and was admirably placed to see both the glittering constellation around the emperor and the humble fraternity of the field. The long and incredibly trying retreat from Moscow is the main subject of his journal, and his great courage and candor make the account all the more moving." from the jacket flap. Price clipped. Pristine, no wear. Clean, tight and strong binding with no underlining, highlighting or marginalia. Red cloth with gilt-bordered black title plate and gilt lettering to front board, gilt lettering to spine, and map on endpapers.
