4) Russia against Napoleon by Dominic Lieven. We know the story, we've read War & Peace, but Dominic Lieven presents new detail from previous inaccessible material from the Russian archives. He blends both the military strategy and the political intrigue to present a complete picture of Russia's brilliant, yet costly defense of their homeland. I am a huge Napoleon fanatic, so this is a must read for me!
