Ok, I hear what you say Kevin. I accept we can move on from here.
My point all along is that the general history of the Napoleonic era has not been fair and balanced nor yet told in its entirely. In my opinion, an author of historical period history, has a special fiduciary responsibility of some note to be sensitive to the perceptions and history of all sides. Today we all have the means of communication to delve far deeper into the past than ever before and seek that extra bit of information or opinion to approach the unknown parts of history without preconceptions. If you or anyone else is not vetting history, and are giving facts, then you do not have to be concerned with political correctness. It is as it is. It is a difficult job to be an archeologist of historical truth, as best it can be told.
Todays post from you using quotes with regard to Russian history of, ignoramus is not generally a term wherein one might expect a return of a reply of good fellowship. This is provocative. Quoting someone who using that term, could be viewed as a canard to hide behind, in the context it was used. Kevin, in order to know you are viewed as objective, fair and balanced, you might ask our Russian colleagues on this site for their insights on this point.
