This must have been one of the largest staged historical battle in Russia. Several thousands of people from more than 120 military and historic clubs of Russia, the USA, Canada and European countries took part in it.
The Battle of Borodino fought on September 7, 1812, was the largest and bloodiest single-day action of the French invasion of Russia and all Napoleonic Wars, involving more than 250,000 troops and resulting in at least 70,000 casualties.
This reconstruction was devoted to the 200th anniversary of the battle. It's going to be a real time journey!
