The Russian Campaign




Christian Wilhelm Faber du Faur


Du Faur, a french artillerist, colonel and talented artist, was an eye-witness and participant of 1812 war. His drawings are naturalistic as photos and are invaluable evidence of the events the author was involved. Profound observant spectator can realise the artist's personal attitude to the happenings of this war through the tuned yellow pages.
