This issue of the yearbook is dedicated to the bicentennial of Napoleon’s 1812 invasion of Russia. The issue features articles by Estonian, Finnish and American historians discussing the various aspects of the Napoleonic Wars ranging from Prussian foreign policy to Russian Imperial decorations, from the logistics of Napoleon’s invasion to the depiction of the invasion in the graphic art of the first half of the 19th century. The issue also includes a chronology of the quarter‑century of the Napoleonic Wars.

The three articles in the second part discuss military cooperation between Latvia and Estonia in the interwar period, issues related to the memorial to victims of war in Pärnu’s Vana Park, and how the Soviet propaganda of the Estonian SSR exploited the stories of World War II veterans. The issue also contains several dozen illustrations and photographs.
