1. the french mistake is basicly the biggest mistake ever and now that country sucks. The mistake would be Napoleon a good strategist but also fucking retarded for sending 400,000 troops to russia to freeze their asses of while France was left unprotected.
Napoleon: I've done pretty well so why not send 400,000 people to Russia anyways I'm doing pretty good right now so nothing could go wrong. In the future this decision will be called the french mistake.

the English: Wow i actually feel kind of bad we didn't win this war Napoleon basicly handed it to us :). Thanks anyways guy.
