    Belarus, no need to excuse for mistakes, we understand you must have been very excited and understandably so! But, if I am not mistaken you should receive a banner acknowledgement! May your luck continue my friend!

    My ancestor was in Napoleon's Imperial Guard; marched to Moscow, and back again to France. A fantastic tale, little known in this country. There's a well known graph on the number of soldiers overlaid on a geographic map: almost half a million invaded Russia, and only 27,000 returned alive.

    "A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything." — Friedrich Nietzsche

    "You ask where I live. I cannot tell you. I am a Voyageur, a Chicot, sir. I live everywhere. My grandfather was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."

    Thanks for the graph, it really gives a good idea of the loss of life, not to mention the loss on the Russian side.

    button guard
    Imperial guard (фр. Garde impériale) — elite armies of army of the First French empire. It is organized by emperor Napoleon I Bonaparte, as the military unit which is carrying out ceremonial functions, right after empire declaration. Was Napoleon's bodyguard, and also provided protection of an imperial surname and all highest ranks of the French army. Use of household troops in fighting operations was an indispensable condition. The guard structure constantly changed, over time it made the appreciable part of the French army including some cases, number over several tens of thousands people. The guard participated in Napoleon's many military campaigns, combining high fighting spirit with personal devotion. Some divisions accompanied Napoleon in his first reference to the island of Elba. All parts of guard were disbanded after the second restoration of Burbons.
