Anonymous asked: what actually happened at dashcon to make it so awful? ive seen lots of stuff making fun of it and complaining, but nothing explaining why

officialunitedstates:

It is one of the biggest errors in world history and here’s why:

  • Although starting in the middle of summer with a few small battles, it eventually dragged on for almost six months into a brutal winter
  • The Russians’ scorched earth policy surprised the French and made the French’s advances much more treacherous and costly
  • Napoleon’s thirst for a full victory was impossible to satisfy because the Russians refused to engage in any prolonged battles, instead wisely choosing to use guerrilla tactics to decimate an already broken, famished, and sickened French Army
  • Over 17,000 French troops lost their lives each month during the disastrous campaign
