very interesting - you almost succeded that I will start to learn Russian

The fall of Vitebsk was a severe blow to Napoleon because he had planned to quarter his battered Grande Armée there for the winter. Napoleon's plan to combine his main army with Victor's force at Vitebsk, where they would reequip themselves before beginning the campaign anew the following spring, was now broken.[7]

the problem, Napoléon had no plan - his ideas about the campaign shifted almost daily from sound evaluation to utmost fantasy.
