'The second in Rambaud's Napoleonic trilogy deals with the most traumatic event in French history after the Occupation -- Napoleon's retreat from Moscow' Guardian
As Rambaud's characters -- D'Herbigny, Paulin and others -- continue the story begun in The Battle, The Retreat unfolds as a convincing and gripping account of a country at war; a mesmerizing and tense drama spun from the story of the French retreat. Told with great narrative flair, precision and vivid detail, Rambaud's account of dire human suffering is both horrific and compelling; a striking testament to the extremes of human behaviour in adversity.
