This is the second time I am reading it. It is very enjoyable, which is a strange thing to say about a catalogue of horrors. Whilst not as good as Adam Zamoyski's book with a similar title, it is nevertheless a riveting account of one of history's military disasters.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 185367415X, Paperback)

This unique paperback brings together in one volume Paul Britten Austin's acclaimed and atmospheric trilogy on Napoleon's Russian campaign, allowing the reader to trace the course of Napoleon's doomed soldiers from the crossing of the Niemen in June 1812 to the catastrophic finale in the depths of a Russian winter. Drawing on hundreds of eyewitness accounts by French and allied soldiers of Napoleon's army, this brilliant study recreates a landmark military campaign in all its death and glory.
