I’ve been mulling this over for days now.
Way back in 2019 I wrote a series of articles about this “great enemy” because I was not sure about where he really stood in history. Was he a goodie or a baddie?
Everything hangs on just ONE question – Why Moscow and not St. Petersburg?
In 1812, the Romanov ruled Russia from their new capital – St. Petersburg. FACT!
What was SO VERY IMPORTANT about Moscow in 1812????
Why did this one man have an unstoppable and utterly reckless need to conquer Moscow?
