XXIXth Bulletin of the Great Army. Campaign of Russia. Molodetschno December 3, 1812

Large folio poster of the period (48 x 37 cm) published in Montauban, rue Napoléon.
Emblematic bulletin, two days before the Emperor left what remained of the Grande Armée to return to Paris following the conspiracy of General Malet.

Official account of the retreat from Russia from November 6 to December 3 in Molodetschno, it relates the arrival of the cold, the departure of Smolensk, the various fights, the heroic breakthrough of marshal Ney encircled, the passage of the Berezina, the harassments by the Cossack troops, the disorganization of the army in spite of the excellent behaviour of the Guard, the formation of the "sacred squadron" to finish by this famous sentence: "His Majesty's health has never been better. "

Of all the bulletins of the Grande Armée, this one is the rarest and most sought after, not only because of its content but also and above all because it is the very last bulletin in the history of the Grande Armée. Afterwards, in 1813, 1814 and 1815, only official reports or news will appear.
