But it finds a city abandoned by its inhabitants - save only the men who emerge to fan the flames as incediary fuzes hidden throughout the empty buildings of Moscow set the city alight. For three days Moscow burns, while looters dodge the fires to plunder and pillage. And so beings '1812: Napoleon in Moscow', Paul Britten Austin's atmospheric 'word-film' presented through the testimony of more than 100 of the people who witnessed and took part in the campaign. A large proportion of these close-up accounts have never been seen in English before." Rubbing on fore-edge of both boards. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, minor rubbing, soft crease on spine, three minor dints on rear panel.
