LSU Shreveport Professor Authors Book

June 25, 2012

LSU Shreveport Assistant Professor of European History Dr. Alexander Mikaberidze has written a book entitled, "Russian Eyewitness Accounts of the Campaign of 1812."

The book was released in the United Kingdom last week to mark the bicentennial of Napoleon's invasion of Russia. It is the first book of its kind to be published in English and will be released in the United States this week.

Each chapter deals with an important episode of the 1812 campaign and features dozens of memoirs, letters and diaries.

Dr. Mikaberidze won the International Napoleonic Society's Legion of Merit Award for his contribution to Napoleonic studies. He has been teaching at LSU Shreveport since 2007.
