Military Book group selection for July 2, 2015

51KTk21jpDL._AA160_The Rye Public Library Military Book Group has chosen Russia Against Napoleon, by Dominic Lieven as the title for their July 2nd discussion at 6:30 PM. The Military Book Group meets on the first Thursday of the month.

Though much has been written about Napoleon’s doomed invasion of Russia and the collapse of the French Empire that ensued, virtually all of it has been from the Western perspective. Now, taking advantage of never- before-seen documents from the Russian archives, Dominic Lieven upends much of the conventional wisdom about the events that formed the backdrop of Tolstoy’s masterpiece, War and Peace. Lieven’s riveting narrative sweeps readers through epic battles, tense diplomatic exchanges on which the fate of nations hung, and the rise of Russia from near-ruin to Europe’s liberator.
