Napoleon attempted to invaded Russia with his army of 600,000 men. He was successful, however, they didn’t surrender. The Russians burned down Moscow so Napoleons armies have no shelters or supplies. This is what made them fail, the bitter cold. When he returned to France, Paris, Europe overthrew him. Then replaced him with Louis XVIII to rule, and exiled Napoleon. He took over France one last time and was defeated once more at the Battle of Waterloo.
