Wow -- thanks! I'll take a look.
I gotta admit, in the meantime, that I have since watched the Audrey Hepburn/Henry Fonda version and the Mosfilm 8-hour version of War and Peace, and the Mosfilm version does an amazing job with the battle scenes, especially Borodino, but the portrayal of the Moscow invasion in both flicks was lackluster.
Thanks again, Levsky!
I have not heard of this particular book, but there is one in English that many think of as definitive. It is called "Russia against Napoleon" by Dominic Lieven. It is a non-fiction account written by an author whose ancestors actually fought against Napoleon. Much of the information in the book is from the Russian State archives and wasn't available before. It's available on Kindle.
