This Day in the History of French Efforts Reaching the Top of a Rainbow Arc

On this day in 1812, Napoleon’s invasion of Russia reached its climax when the Grande Armee entered Moscow. The French have not, at least unaided by the Brits and/or us, won a war since. Hitler tried and couldn't even get done what Napoleon did--his armies stalled outside St. Petersburg and Moscow and the last bit of Stalingrad. Germany has not done well, militarily, ever since either. Not so secret protocol for the American President, "Don't invade Russia."
