Remarkable 2012. Celebrated two hundred years the greatest Russian victory over Napoleon people. How did the two hundred thousandth of the Russian army succeeded in just six months to defeat three times superior enemy forces? By the time Napoleon was subjected to the whole of Europe.
Napoleon's attack caught the Russian army by surprise and because they were forced to retreat to Moscow. Connection armies under the command of Barclay de Tolly and Bagration P. occurred near Smolensk. Already in this fight Russian soldiers caused considerable damage to the French.
Next, it becomes general, the battle of Borodino, showed courage, heroism and fortitude of the Russian soldiers. French losses were significant, but their numerical superiority over the Russian was still huge. Commander M. Kutuzov was forced to surrender to the enemy to Moscow. However, this is a tragic event for the Russian army and became Napoleon's fatal.
Throughout the occupied territories was an active guerrilla warfare. The civilian population in every way hinder the enemy, hiding food and fodder, often burning the whole estate, harrying the French surprise attack. The war has turned into a national.
