Napoleon during the capture and fire of Moscow in 1812

Napoleon and his Grand Army entered Moscow, on 14 September 1812, the capital erupted in flames that and destroyed two thirds of the city. The fiery devastation had a profound effect on the Grand Army, but for thirty-five days Napoleon stayed, making increasingly desperate efforts to achieve peace with Russia. Then, in October, almost surrounded by the Russians and with winter fast approaching, he abandoned the capital and embarked on a long, bitter retreat that destroyed his army.
