Re: Berthier and the bridges, 17 Oct 1813.

Napoleon had difficulties at the Berezina precisely because of the thaw, he expected it to be frozen but it wasn't. You claim that the marshes had re-frozen. But when I took a quick look at Mikaberidze's book The Battle of Berezina I found that a Capt Arnoldi tried hamper the French bridge building with artillery but "Low-lying marshy terrain prevented him deploying his guns close to the river" (page 127).

This, along with descriptions & comments in this book suggest to me that the marshes were still marshy during the bridging operations.
