As I may point out, The Revolutionary Wars started in 1792, so there are many campaigns to cover in the future :) If Napoleon had watched this documentary, he would probably say: What a great series, what a great series!

@UniqueChannelNameRussian is a hard language to translate. It's very rich and flexible so u can literally twist the sentence in various ways. For Russians its perfectly normal, as for translations and those who read from it, it goes 2 ways - a riddle if written in a complicated way or a sound sentence that is written plainly so that translator can proceed it perfectly. In your case its a riddle.

@Hillbilly in the Asia the Ukrainians couldn't in kherson or kharkov and Napoleon chased the Russians for how long? Not every situation is the same. Some enemies take more loses chasing thier retreating enemy, especially that a tactical retreat is a tried and tested military strategy.

The Battle of Waterloo was the single most important land battle, of the entire history of humanity, until World War One. Bc it was the last nail in France’s coffin, to become the numero uno and the head of nations. Had Waterloo been won by Napoleon, he would’ve gained control over half of Europe again and then been able to threaten, the freedom of the world again. The British only had a small land army and would not have been able to threaten Napoleon on land again. The Prussians, Austrians and Spanish had all been beaten by Napoleon before their liberation by Russia and Britain. Napoleon would’ve done the same to them again, or they would’ve flipped back to his side peacefully, then Napoleon would’ve had another go at Russia and probably forced a negotiated settlement, from Emperor Alexander of Russia. Then Napoleon could secure the resources and cooperation from Europe’s powers, in order to blockade and potentially invade his arch nemesis Great Britain.

Like many others I thought this was an outstanding video history series, a generous 3 hour runtime to treat the subject in the detail it deserves, but at the same time not yielding to the temptation of padding with filler material. Maps excellent, ads minimal. Am I correct that the presenter is fluent in both French and Russian? though I can't place his accent in the spoken English. But I'm only a casual part-time viewer of these online history docs, and here I read in the comments that Epic tv brand is out there doing just as well if not better, on the very same topic. Indeed I've quite lost track of all the different video history brands. So what's up with online history documentaries?? the sub-genre has just exploded in popularity and the competition is now as fierce as the battle of Borodino itself.

Decent. I know it is a long video and some details had to be left out, but leaving out the Russian raid into the Frensh rear at Borodino is a travesty. It was one of the reasons why Napolean chose not to commit his Guard. Also, the major reason not to commit the Imperial Guard was the fact that the battlefield was shrouded in smoke and Napoleon could not see the whole picture. Russian Imperial Guard was used at the end of the battle to make it look the Russians were not beaten. They stood and took cannon fire until the end of the day.

Did Junot ever explain why he didn't attack? It's impressive how close Napoleon came to victory. Neglecting his logistics and getting into a meet grinder against the Russians at Bordino seem remarkably un-Napoleon like.

How could Napoleon possibly supply and feed an army of that size so far from friendly territory? No wonder it was an ignominious defeat! Logistics in great battles of this kind almost always outweigh the importance of winning skirmishes and actual fighting. Modern military conflicts, take note.

Hearing this really drives home how foolish Hitler was to pursue the Soviets to Moscow. So many of the exact same errors. Did they not study Napolean's conquests? Was their own hubris really that strong? Imagine what would have happened if they put all their strength into capturing and securing Rostov.

That's what happens when instead of following your plan and advice from your talented men you follow fortune.

Anyone with a cursory knowledge of the French Revolution would see what Napoleon envisioned for Europe is absolutely terrifying.

You said that from 600 hundred thousand man that was in Napoleon side only 15 thousand survive by the end of the campaign but couple minutes later you also pointed out that an estimated 300,000 died in the campaign so my question is what happend with the other 300 thousand?

Probably deserters. Or just casualties such as wounded and not able to fight.
