Heinrich von Brandt was an intrepid young Polish soldier who fought for Napoleon from Madrid to Moscow. This memoir describes his career, in which he was severely wounded three times, and experienced the siege of Saragossa, Spanish guerrilla warfare, the crossing of the Niemen and the retreat from Moscow, and gives a direct insight into the minds of the soldiers involved in such gruelling engagements.
