The Russian Campaign of 1812 is an essential volume on this turning point in European . Carl Philipp Gottlieb von Clausewitz was a Prussian soldier, military historian and military theorist.

The Russian Campaign of 1812 is an essential volume on this turning point in European history. In this book Clausewitz analyses the campaign of 1812 in which he participated in Russian service. It is carefully and precisely written. He is most famous for his military treatise Vom Kriege, translated into English as On War. Clausewitz has served in the Rhine campaign (1793–1794), when the Prussian army invaded France during the French revolution and in the Napoleonic Wars from 1806 to 1815.

The Campaign of 1812 in Russia is a brilliantly observed study of one of the major turning points of history. I am admittedly not a military history sort, but I just could not find the substance of the campaign that I was looking for. I kept moving forward, looking for a flicker of the larger picture.

The section contains materials on regular and irregular military formations in the Patriotic war of 1812, the issues of recruitment and logistical support of the army.

An equally massive Russian army faced them. The ensuing campaign was a catastrophe for Napoleon. Although the battle of Borodino, which resulted in heavy losses on both sides, allowed Napoleon to enter Moscow, his stay in that empty and decimated city was disastrous. By the time Napoleon had retreated to the Berezina river in late November, his Grande Armee was only a fifth of its original strength. His retreat had become a rout, and his allies began to desert him.

This is Fond 846, the so-called Voenno-uchenyi Arkhiv (VUA). Not just in 1812 but also for much of 1813 the outcome remained very uncertain with most of the odds seemingly in Napoleon’s favour. His personal history in these years is a tale of hubris and nemesis.

Although I found the book insightful and rather stimulating, there was a large lack of precise detail regarding the mindset of the Emperor himself and just why he would attempt such a foolhardy invasion. Along with the maps and depictions, it was totally enjoyable, one of the few books I have not been able to put down.

But to me, as a person seeking a first-hand account of 1812, there just really was not much to this book.

I am admittedly not a military history sort, but I just could not find the substance of the campaign that I was looking for. I kept moving forward, looking for a flicker of the larger picture. Von Clausewitz is so highly regarded, I do wonder if it is just me here.

I have another such histroy on my reading list. I just hope this military experience was an aberration.

But my disappointment and irritation led me to do the unthinkable - I threw this one onto the trash. No use having such an book taking precious shelf space.
