Marshal Ney in the Snow

Marshal Ney in the Snow

This picture of Marshal Ney in the snow is probably set during the retreat from Moscow, by the looks of the soldiers in the background.

Take from Histoire du Consulat et de l'Empire, faisant suite à l'Histoire de la Révolution Française by Louis Adolphe Thiers

Who was Who in the Napoleonic Wars, Philip J Haythornthwaite Covers over one thousand of the most important political, military, civil and artistic figures of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic period, from all of the combatant powers. A very useful reference book that shows just how widely this first 'Great War' spread its influence. Each biography is short, with three to a page, but this allows the author to fit in so many differing characters.
