red end-papers; Napoleon's Grande Armée reached Moscow on 14 September 1812. However, the army was already drastically reduced by skirmishes with the Russians, disease (principally typhus), desertion, and long communication lines. The army spent a month in Moscow but was ultimately forced to march back westward. It started to suffer from cold, starvation and disease, and was constantly harassed by Cossacks and Russian partisans, resulting in its utter destruction as a fighting force. Although Caulaincourt was openly critical of Napoleon's Russian campaign nonetheless the Emperor selected him to accompany him on his retreat & hurried return to Paris.
