Crisis in the Snows: Russia Confronts Napoleon: The Eylau Campaign 1806-1807
by James R. Arnold & Ralph R. Reinertsen

Using primary sources gleaned from libraries and archives in Europe and the United States, Crisis in the Snows removes the shroud of Napoleon’s propaganda to portray the demoralizing reality of the winter campaign in Poland. Napoleon’s Grande Armée is revealed not as a smoothly oiled machine but rather a war-weary force whose soldiers doubted that France’s security required a march into Poland. Yet, when summoned to battle by a man who possessed a unique capacity to inspire French self-sacrifice, Napoleon's soldiers repeatedly displayed prodigies of valor. $60.00 plus postage.
