This is a 11 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The French Revolution - The Invasion of Russia. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

In June of 1812, Napoleon began his fatal Russian campaign, a landmark in the history of the destructive potential of warfare. Virtually all of continental Europe was under his control, and the invasion of Russia was an attempt to force Tsar Alexander I to submit once again to the terms of a treaty that Napoleon had imposed upon him 4 years earlier.

Having gathered nearly half a million soldiers, from France as well as all of the vassal states of Europe, Napoleon entered Russia at the head of the largest army ever seen. The Russians, under Marshal Kutuzov, could not hope to defeat him in a direct confrontation. Instead, they begin a defensive campaign of strategic retreat, devastating the land as they fell back while harassing the flanks of the French.

As the summer wore on, Napoleon's massive supply lines were stretched ever thinner, and his force began to decline. By September, without having engaged in a single pitched battle, the French Army had been reduced by more than two thirds from fatigue, hunger, desertion, and raids by Russian forces.

The Russian Winter eventually destroyed the French army.

The presentation covers the following:

Invasion of Russia
Russia’s War Strategy
Battle for Moscow
Moscow Surrenders
Retreat Home
Russian Winter
Paris, Unrest & Defeat
Casualties
End of Presentation
