Collage 396

Over and over again you see this ambivalent attitude of the Russians and their relationship to the French. Even in the midst of preparing for battle, one of the Russian imperial adjutants, Chernyshov, is reading a French novel. In this scene, some Russian officers are also speaking in German. I used some old German text here. -- Lola
