The book charts the progress of the Grande Armée toward it’s apogee at the occupation of Moscow, followed by the great fire of Moscow and the looting of the city to the terrible retreat. During the retreat the full horror of the hunger, privation are vividly depicted, not only in Bourgogne’s own sufferings, but also those of his friends and countrymen.

Bourgogne was now sergeant. Already he had travelled a great deal. At last, in March, 1813, Bourgogne was once more in his own country, and promoted (receiving the epaulette of a Sub-Lieutenant of the 145th of the Line). He had seen something of most countries, and wherever he had been he had taken note of what he saw. How immense would be the value to the intimate history of the army under the First Empire, had he but left behind really complete memoirs, as foreshadowed in one passage of his book! The remarkable fragment or portion now issued raises a great expectation of the completion. He then set off again for Prussia.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It is a good first-hand account of the retreat from Moscow. At times it can get graphic, but it makes you realize how horrific this retreat was.

Good write of conditions my great, great grandfather experienced.
Conjuril
Realistic...sadly realistic as to the horror of war in all ages.

Excellent view from the NCO ranks of the disintegration of Napoleons Army in Russia.Well written with many vignettes of his and comrades experiences during the retreat.A much more compelling account than the Coulaincourt memoir. Compared To Bourgogne C. had a relatively easy time of it and did little or no fighting during the retreat.Shadowing the Emperor (Who abandoned the ARMy and provided little or no leadership during the retreat) made for a cushy time of it in comparison.
One wonders why there was so much blind loyalty by the soldiers and so little prep by N during this campaign. I guess longterm strategy and plan B were not Ns strong points in this campaign.

I have always been fascinated with military history and most of the books I have read concern the German Wehrmacht in World War 2. I make it a point of collecting personal diaries of ordinary soldiers experiences. Burgogne's book is one of the best war diaries I have ever read. He recounts his experiences during the capture of, and more importantly, the retreat from Moscow in vivid detail. This is an important work because he is able to articulate these experiences in his book so the reader feels as if he were there. The similarities of this work and Guy Sajer's Forgotten Soldier (World War 2)are amazing and well worth the purchase for any military enthusiast. Other good accounts of the Russina campaign are by Philippe-Paul De Segur and Armand De Caulaincourt.

One of the greatest narratives I've ever read. Probably THE greatest.
