We're far away from our Country, and every day brings us one day closer to winter.
This campaign will now decide what Europe will be: or one Country, or a return to the past. In front of us, the Western Dvina river and the Dnieper river. Moscow is far away at East, on the limit of the map.
Should we send the Army to defend the left wing, on Polotsk direction, at north?
Should we defeat first the Cicagov army, coming from south of our headquarters?
Should we have to run behind the Russian battalions that are withdraw?
Or leave the battlefields and rush to Moscow by forced marches?
Napoleon, we are awaiting orders.
We must defeat Kutuzov and bend the Tsar to our will.
