French order of battle 1812?

Hi, Iíve got a question about the Orders of battle of the Grande Armťe during the 1812 campaign.

Iíve compared the OBís from George Nafzigerís Napoleonís ĎInvasion of Russiaí and Digby Smithís ĎArmies of 1812í.

There is a problem there. Nafzigerís strengths for Oudinotís II Corps for August the 1st are the same as Smithís numbers for II Corps for June the 1st. That canít be right. How can I ascertain whoís made a mistake there? Ergo: is there a decent primary source for this?

In Smithís book he states that he got his numbers form Fabryís Campagne de Russie, but I canít find these figures anywhere in the volumes I could find online. Could anyone help me out here? Thanks!
