      You actually butchered the word "wherent" pritty baddly, it dosent exhist as a word, im guessing you were trying to say "were not", i think if you would have used an apostrophy like this... wher'nt ..... it might have looked more believeable....
      Amazing guy, critises others for "butcherey" when he is a master butcher himself 😂😂😂😂😂

      I would say that "Grammer" is very significant, because it defines the way that we communicate, the kind of person we proport to be, is shown in our Grammer, and consequently we are assesed as to wether that person is worthy of respect or not.
      The oposite of that, is a person whom tries to communicate and english (for example) is their 2nd or 3rd language, so many errors are made giving whats called "broken" or "pidgeon" english...
      I think it is just samantics that one padantic person critises another persons gramatical skils, and for me, as long as they get their point across, thats fine, and i have neither the time or the energy to critise another persons gramatical or spelling mistakes, besides im too tactfull and respectfull as i appreciate another persons effort in being able to communicate to me, it is all samantics, and i couldnt be bothered with them...... Grammer (where ever possible) is everything, samantics are just basically "bitching" at another person to show your better, ever considered the person you speak to and insult could be capable of speaking 15 languages fluently?......
      See how samantics waste time and effort?....

      Why is it "apperently"? Do you question its authenticity or "just because" its here, it has to be correct?.... weird use of the word "apperently" which implies some sort of questionable ambiguity?.... lol

      @Frances Bernard We all learned spelling in early grammar school, while too underdeveloped to learn important things. Similarly grammar.
      "Grammar" school. ☺☺☺
      Next to semantics, grammar is quite insignificant.

As I may point out, The Revolutionary Wars started in 1792, so there are many campaigns to cover in the future :) If Napoleon had watched this documentary, he would probably say: What a great series, what a great series!

      The Battle of Waterloo was the single most important land battle, of the entire history of humanity, until World War One.
      Bc it was the last nail in France’s coffin, to become the numero uno and the head of nations.
      Had Waterloo been won by Napoleon, he would’ve gained control over half of Europe again and then been able to threaten, the freedom of the world again.
      The British only had a small land army and would not have been able to threaten Napoleon on land again. The Prussians, Austrians and Spanish had all been beaten by Napoleon before their liberation by Russia and Britain. Napoleon would’ve done the same to them again, or they would’ve flipped back to his side peacefully, then Napoleon would’ve had another go at Russia and probably forced a negotiated settlement, from Emperor Alexander of Russia. Then Napoleon could secure the resources and cooperation from Europe’s powers, in order to blockade and potentially invade his arch nemesis Great Britain.

      @UniqueChannelNameRussian is a hard language to translate. It's very rich and flexible so u can literally twist the sentence in various ways. For Russians its perfectly normal, as for translations and those who read from it, it goes 2 ways - a riddle if written in a complicated way or a sound sentence that is written plainly so that translator can proceed it perfectly. In your case its a riddle.

    He unfortunately arrived here just in time for them to be caught up in the Civil War.

    Like many others I thought this was an outstanding video history series, a generous 3 hour runtime to treat the subject in the detail it deserves, but at the same time not yielding to the temptation of padding with filler material. Maps excellent, ads minimal. Am I correct that the presenter is fluent in both French and Russian? though I can't place his accent in the spoken English. But I'm only a casual part-time viewer of these online history docs, and here I read in the comments that Epic tv brand is out there doing just as well if not better, on the very same topic. Indeed I've quite lost track of all the different video history brands. So what's up with online history documentaries?? the sub-genre has just exploded in popularity and the competition is now as fierce as the battle of Borodino itself.

All in correct military French, paid in Francs. I had a Polish Lancer Tschapka from this campaign for many years, Finally selling it to a well known Hollywood actor that is also a quiet but advanced Napoleon era Militaria collector.

    Decent. I know it is a long video and some details had to be left out, but leaving out the Russian raid into the Frensh rear at Borodino is a travesty. It was one of the reasons why Napolean chose not to commit his Guard. Also, the major reason not to commit the Imperial Guard was the fact that the battlefield was shrouded in smoke and Napoleon could not see the whole picture. Russian Imperial Guard was used at the end of the battle to make it look the Russians were not beaten. They stood and took cannon fire until the end of the day.

    Did Junot ever explain why he didn't attack? It's impressive how close Napoleon came to victory. Neglecting his logistics and getting into a meet grinder against the Russians at Bordino seem remarkably un-Napoleon like.

      If I recall it was due to confusion in orders. Junot wasn’t aware that the order to attack came from Napoleon directly and thought that Ney or another Marshal had asked him to, so he refused.

    You said that from 600 hundred thousand man that was in Napoleon side only 15 thousand survive by the end of the campaign but couple minutes later you also pointed out that an estimated 300,000 died in the campaign so my question is what happend with the other 300 thousand?

      Probably deserters. Or just casualties such as wounded and not able to fight.
