This book provides a detailed account of the burning of Moscow and is the third volume
of the author's in-depth reassessment of the war between the French and Russian empires.
This is a work of scholarship, but one which is written in a lively style It has been very
thoroughly researched and draws on a wide range of sources and eyewitness accounts,
including French, Russian, German, Polish, and Dutch accounts. It is particularly interesting
in that it has been released at the same time as “Stalingrad to Berlin” providing the opportunity
to use two well researched and written works to compare the French experiences of 1812 and
the German experiences between 1941 and 1945.
