The Main Battle Against France Turns 200

The Main Battle Against France Turns 200

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!

Adverse weather did not stop the people from time travelling, they stayed till the very victorious moment.

  1. I wish they could make a new movie about it! I’d also want movies about the wars with the turks, the golden horde, the tatars…and something about Rurik, Ivan the terrible, Peter the great [rambling continues]…

    • if u want to see battle of borodino u can watch
      “war and peace” its one of the best and the most expensive movies ever made !
      “orda” “mongol” – for your wishes about golden horde. “tzar” about Ivan, or just watch old but gold one from ’44. “turkish gambit” for turks.
      I dont know where are u from, but here is the site with great russian movies http://my.opera.com/russkifilm/blog/ (if these is legal :))) )
      if u are from russia I bet u have already watch majority of those films but I hope this site can help u anyway

      • Awesome! Thanks! Will start digging around. I’m from Finland originally (swedish speaker), but I’m living in Sweden now (my family moved back after 1000 years LOL). Russian history is very dramatic, never a dull moment. Oh yeah, I’ve seen “Mongol”…loved it!

        • so if I understood you well – you came back to land of your ancestors.
          russian movies are great, its so different movie style. more realistic, hard to find “happy end” in russian movie , just like real life is.
          enjoy those movies ! I hope this site is not too much complicated for use because its on serbian cyrillic .
          enyoj !

          • Yup, got that right. And there are even older SOVIET movies that rock, “STALKER” and “Idi i smotri”. No Hollywood cheesines at all 🙂
