"From the close of the year 1811 intensified arm-ing and concentrating of the forces of Western Europe began, and in 1812 these forces-millions of men, reckoning those transporting and feeding the army-moved from the west eastwards to the Russian frontier, toward which since 1811 Rus-sian forces had been similarly drawn. On the twelfth of June, 1812, the forces of Western Eu-rope crossed the Russian frontier and war began, that is, an event took place opposed to human reason and to human nature. Millions of men perpetrated against one another such innumera-ble crimes, frauds, treacheries, thefts, forgeries, is-sues of false money, burglaries, incendiarisms, and murders as in whole centuries are not rec-orded in the annals of all the law courts of the world, but which those who committed them did not at the time regard as being crimes.
