The Diary of a Napoleonic Foot Soldier - Jakob Walter This book represents a rare retrospective from a semi-literate soldier from one of the German states which supplied soldiers to Napoleon during his campaigns against the Prussians and Russians. Walter's experiences with the Grande Armée took him beyond Prussia and Poland into Russia itself. He conveys the difficulties of soldiering, living off the land, and the hazards he faced in getting out of Russia in the wake of Napoleon's disastrous winter retreat of 1812-13.
