1812 With Josh and Jimmy.

  1. Hi Josh)
    You have great content and great site) I am Russian, historian by education and I can say that Count Rostopchin was never Francophile, as Chen says, on the contrary he always disliked French. A lot of documents reflecting his activity as a Moscow commander-in-chief have been preserved. On his orders, practically, before Boni entered Moscow, all the fire pipes were taken out. This order, I think, was even published, here in Russia.
    Regards Vladimir.
