	Although I don't recall the original source of the graphic, I
believe it is discussed and analyzed in Edward R. Tufte, The Visual Display
of Quantitative Information (Feb. 1992), ISBN: 096139210X.  If I'm wrong, it
is certainly discussed in one of Tufte's other books.

Subject:	[mg26888] Napoleon


At some time over the last couple of years I remember coming across a
notebook with a graphic which showed Napoleons march toward moscow (?). From
memory the objective of the notebook may have been to demonstrate the use of
graphics primitives. I can't remember where I saw this (mathsource?,
resource library? etc).

Can anyone help me out?
