People (South Africa) - - Week In Focus -

WHILE most will go for a walk or a drink on a week­end, some in the Ukraine thought oth­er­wise. What bet­ter way to spend a Satur­day af­ter­noon than to be splat­tered by gun­pow­der and deaf­ened by can­non blasts? Mem­bers of his­tor­i­cal clubs were adorned in early 19th Cen­tury mil­i­tary garb as they re-en­acted the Bat­tle of Berez­ina. This bat­tle took place in Novem­ber 1812 and saw French armies un­der Napoleon halt their in­va­sion into Rus­sia.
