I once saw somewhere a two-dimensional graphic of this march. IIRC, it contained an
upper graph of the number of troops going toward Moscow and a lower graph below of
the dwindling number of the Grand Armee troops retreating toward Paris. I Googled for
this, but I am unable to find the URL of this or a publication referencing this.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks Jerry. I must have mis remembered what it looked like since I first saw it
long ago. What you posted above is the one for certain. One can even buy an English
text copy of it for $18 at the second of your posted URLs. Thanks again.
Two versions of this are shown as examples in "The Visual Display of
Quantitative Information". One of them was IIRC used in the advertisements
for the book. The one at University of Texas is derived from one of them.

It was also cited as one of the best in a "Proceedings of the
ACM" many, many years ago. Don't know if that was before or
after the book.
I just looked at the site - it says " Probably the best
statistical graphic ever drawn".
