1812: When Napoleon ventured East

by TASS
Silver

A special historical project by Russian news agency TASS dedicated to one of the most dramatic pages in Russia’s past – the Patriotic War of 1812. This program is based on a map outlined by French engineer Charles Joseph Minard in 1869. This statistical diagram presents a graphic picture of Napoleon’s Russian campaign and all the stages that eventually led to his army’s defeat. TASS tracks the route of the French army and compares Minard’s statistics with the latest findings and estimates, while recounting key episodes of that conflict.
