    Just a quick observation. I subscribe to military history mag and have yet to see anything on Napoleon's invasion of Russia. I know a lot has been written about it, but with the new info coming out of the old Soviet Union thare has to be something new and not just that, the battle of Borodino was pretty interesting and accounted for many casualties. There has got to be a good story there somewhere.
