[Anecdotes] :: Prisoners Repatriated
When Napoleon’s army retreated from Moscow, they left behind some soldiers who were being held captive in Russia. Later, Russia notified France that it could take the POWs back, but the newly installed Bourbon dynasty refused the offer. The soldiers spent nearly 30 years in prison and, after their release, lived in misery tilling the site of the destroyed prison and yearning for their native land.
This is a tragic episode in history.
