Reading for Saturday, 4 April
This chapter is also a bit difficult to read without a map, but the basic gist of it all is that the Russian army was starting to re-gather strength, the French army was starting to weaken.
Also, the French were losing track of what the Russians were up to, and the Russians were starting to turn back around and halt their retreat. Either way, what was a devastating event for the Russians – the loss of their capital – something that might be expected to cripple another nation, is actually swinging back in their favour . . . we shall see how it all pans out.
