Russian Generals Of The Napoleonic Wars Period

One Little Note

Because the main part of materials are from the rather old sources remember please that almost all dates are given in the Russian old style (the Julian calendar that was in use in Russia till 1917). If a date is given in the new (Gregorian)style , there will be a note in brackets. The difference between Julian and Gregorian calendars depends on the number of the century. For XVIII century the difference is - 11 days, for XIX century - 12 days and for XX and XXI century - 13 days. So the date of the Borodino battle in the old (Julian) style is August,26 and in the new (Gregorian) style it will be September, 7.
