      Thats my point.

      It's like invading Hamburg with everything you got then and then just sit there and wait for a surrender.

      Moscow wasnt the ultimate goal, it was a tool to draw the Russians into a decisive engagement which they were but the Russians managed to save themselves and on the better judgement of the generalship abandoned Moscow rather than abandon the army.

        But wasnt Borodino that one battle Napoleon wanted? And he won it.

        I still dont get it, 18-19th century wasnt manouver warfare of encircling and destroying your enemy, so I dont understand what Napoleon thought was going to happen.

          The autist thought that defeating Russia would be same as Austria or Prussia.

          Napoleon expected Tsar Alexander to sit down with him after losing the majority of his territory, the majority of his army, and the majority of his cities and say "Damn I guess it is easier and cheaper to not trade with the Anglos than to fight with you."
          Napoleon fundamentally misunderstood the bloody-minded cast of the Asiatic mind, which would rear its head again in the Russian civil war and WW2, and again in the Ukraine War

            Napoleon literally just went straight for Moscow in a very narrow campaign route. He captured Smolensk on the way (which was later lost as he was waiting for a surrender in Moscow).

            Why didnt you just not say israelites were behind it? That's usually how the story goes whenever someone tries to make sense of history by applying Hitler rhetoric.

    More like "if we defeat the bulk of their army in a big decisive, then Russia will surrender". The problem was, he never managed to truly crush the Russian military, and they kept retreating up to Moscow while the French army kept melting away.
    Napoopan did send a separate army against St. Petersburg through the Baltics, but those guys got rekt.

    Napolean assumed Russians would surrender because that's what normal people would do.
    Russians however aren't normal and they're used to having nothing, Russians today are still okay with being sent to die against superior weapons that they won't even see for their ork overlord Putin.

      Then most people arent normal since there are countless of examples when they didnt surrender after initial losses.

      Frederick II had lost virtually all of Prussia, including Berlin during the Seven Year War, but kept manouvering his army trying to maintain as much as he could and score a victory wherever was possible despite a near hopeless situation.

    Napoleon never expected to be drawn any further into the Russian interior than Smolensk. That is where he intended to lay a trap on the Russian army and defeat them decisively. Unfortunately, coordination failed and the Russian army slipping away, by which point the Grande Armée kept chasing them to the gates of Moscow.
