I juni 1812 invaderede Napoleon Rusland med over 500.000 tropper, ikke så meget for at "erobre" noget, hensigten var mere at vinde et stort slag (som Austerlitz) og derefter diktere vilkår.
Desværre for Napoleon var den russiske hær ikke med på den agenda .

He finally got a big battle at Smolensk, which could be called a French victory...except the Russian armies just retreated and burned. Now under the command of (recalled from retirement) Marshal Kutuzov, the army made a stand near the small village of Borodino, which had only marginal useful defensive terrain but was the best place to stop the French before Moscow.
After two days of skirmishing and probing, the major battle took place Monday, September 7. About 250,000 troops were involved and the two armies lost about 70,000 casualties. It was the single bloodiest day of the entire Napoleonic Wars period — "Bloody Monday".
Using the game engine from Moscow '41 (and not VNG's Waterloo 200), the game Bloody Monday provides action and challenges, plus the joy of die rolling. Unlike other VNG products, Bloody Monday uses large 20mm blocks to provide enough detail and different unit types but still keep the game playable in one sitting. Colorful PVC stickers and "fog of war" give players everything they need in an easy mechanism.
