I can't stop thinking about Napoleon's winter coat. I am wondering if he is wearing it in either of these painting depicting the the retreat from Moscow.
Tsar Alexander gave Napoleon a sable lined fur coat when they met for peace talks A very nice gift.
Its been written that Napoleon then wore this coat on all his future winter campaigns. I wonder if he wore it when he invaded Russia? Did he wear it on purpose? I would love to know if he thought this was funny.
