Hi all, I got to do a school project for well school on the war of France vs Russian in 1812. I'm supposed to make at least 5 journal entrys of a soilder and his time on the front lines of the war so basicly I just thought maybe there is someone here who knows there history. Anyway if anyone here knows anything about that war or has knows some good historical war sites please post em, I'm trying to get 110/110 in this project because it will raise my easily to my A WOOT and than ill have 3 A's in highschool (damn by c+ in science)
If this makes a diffrence im writing about been a Private and part of a cannon crew. Also if you guys know any good last french names or any russian food they might of ate in 1812 it would help alot also, o and the reason for it is because I've decided on Edwin (my real first name) or John (my screen name for war games) for my soilder but just cant find a good last french name and I need some names of food in 1812 that way I can add detail like how we grabed supplys like rifles and bombs etc... and some food. (dont got any names of russian food tho)
Thanks anywho if you can post anything about 1812.
Heh..that was like one of the biggest military disasters in history.I think the russian winter and starvation killed more french then the Russians did.But I still love the Russians,because they kicked the French's ***** and that makes them cool in my book XD !
Here's some sites with some info..
You're on your own with the food though.I've had Borsch but that's the only thing Russian I've ever eaten...wasn't very good either.
I doubt you have the time but the novel War & Peace is not only one of the greatest pieces of literature ever written but it is a great account of this. It is extremely long and pretty and is incredibly dense but you wont find a more exciting narrative of this.
â€œCry â€˜Havocâ€™ and let slip the dogs of war!â€? - Julius Caesar, Act III, Scene I
Ok doky ty, o and been to both those sites.... worth another go thought hey a ryme manage that in this time ooo aaa.... SCARY!
Edicus' sights are pretty decent for basic facts. And Bawdy's right, that book is important. Remember to analyze everything you see in the fact that France is an emerging nation state at the time, developing from a pre-modern to a modern era. Populations are starting to be calculated, the speration of private and public spheres, modernity. I know that's complex but to put it simpiliar, try to think of it in terms that a soldier in Napoleon's army would have grown up during the REvolution, altering his worldview.
