Detailed description

200th anniversary of the victory in the Patriotic War of 1812. Russia celebrated in 2012. This war of liberation against Napoleon's Russian aggression, which played an important role in the development of the country as a world power.

The main reasons for the invasion of Napoleon's troops on the territory of Russia:

  • aggravation of Russian-French economic and political contradictions;
  • Russia actual abandonment of the Continental Blockade.

Having conquered the whole of Europe, Napoleon was confident of victory, believing that Russia will not be able to cope with an experienced, trained and strongest army at that time in the world, is much superior in numbers of the Russian army.

It began June 24, 1812, when Napoleon and his Grand Army crossed the river Neumann in the western part of Russia and launched an offensive on Moscow. Only 14 December 1812 managed to completely expel Napoleon's army from Russia.

The French army was never able to fully recover from the losses suffered in Russia. Russia's victory in the war was one of the most striking manifestation of the Russian spirit, steadfast, steadfastness and heroism. The War of 1812 was the beginning of the end of the Napoleonic Empire, putting an end to his reputation as an invincible "military genius".
