Imperial Sunset: The Fall of Napoleon, 1813-14
Beginning with a picture of the Cossacks of the Elbe in the spring of 1813, the author proceeds to show the results of the disastrous Russian winter and the defeat of 1812, the effects of the fateful years, 1813-1814, as the outer edges of Napoleon's empire began to crumble; the campaigns in the German states; the situation along the shores of the Baltic, in Spain and in Italy.
