MIKABERIDZE Alexander, RADOZHITSKII Ilya, Campaign Memoirs of the Artilleryman - Part 1: 1812 (Russian Voices of the Napoleonic Wars)

Description:  
From the publishers:
Russia played a decisive role in the Napoleonic Wars and their success in the struggle against Napoleonic France allowed Russian leaders to influence the course of European history. Yet Russian voices are oftentimes absent from the pages of historical accounts since a combination of political and ideological rivalries, linguistic difficulties and administrative hurdles created a substantial dearth of English translations of Russian narratives of the Napoleonic Wars. To commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Napoleonic Wars, the "Russian Voices of the Napoleonic Wars" series will gradually present previously unknown or unavailable Russian primary sources.
 
The second release in the "Russian Voices" series, Alexander Mikaberidze's translation of Ilya Radozhitskii's campaign memoirs recounts the soldier's experiences of the 1812 war and include an eyewitness account of the Grande Armée's catastrophic winter retreat from Moscow.
 
Six volumes are planned for release over the coming months. These memoirs are translated and edited by Alexander Mikaberidze, assistant professor of European history at Louisiana State University. He recently spoke to napoleon.org about his new project in an interview that can be read here.
 
The books can be purchased via Lulu.com (external link).
