Official printed bulletin of the French Grand Army, authentic, document. This four page document is approximately 8" x 9" in size and dated January 11, 1806. It contains very interesting details. These official bulletins were widely spread to the French citizenry informing them of important battles of the French Army, as well as other military and political news.

The first page of the bulletin bears a handsome woodcut of the Grand Army and is headed "Official News" announcing that the Russian Army had been defeated by the armies of his Majesty, the Emperor and King. It further states that the Russian Army had been surrounded and persued on all sides by the French Army. The enemy, who had lost some 30,000 men, had had most of its army baggage captured.

The French Grand Army first came to be when Napoleon I renamed the army that he had assembled on the French coast of the English Channel for the proposed Invasion of Britain. The name was later re-deployed at the threat of the Austrian and Russian Armies and thereafter used as the official name for all French army forces.

This printed document is in good to very good condition, with overall light toning not affecting any of the wording. The pages are held together at the left margin affixed to a stock piece of paper.
