Russian battery at Borodino. Wallpaper for computer game Age of Empires, the battle of Borodino was fought in a cold, cloudy day. I resized the pic and retouched the colors to give the sky that leaden, gloomy atmosphere. Hope you like it.


Thanks Friedrich! That is one great picture!

It was the first global war engulfing all of Europe and the birth of the modern Europe and national consciousness for many countries. It is also the Age of Napoleon.

Even though their involvement was a sideshow, it is also an important part of the history of the USA.
