In reality, the Russians did not defeat the superior grand army of Napoleon. What actually defeated the French Army was the vicious Russian winter.

How was Napoleon finally defeated?

They were defeated by a Russian Army that kept retreating until the French supply lines could no longer support the Grand Army. They fought a single great battle at Borodino in September with each side loosing about 30,000 men after which the Russian again retreated to a position beyond Moscow. On 19 October Napoleon finally was forced to abandon Moscow and return to France. The Russians followed the retreating Grand Army and attacked the artillery and baggage trains at every opportunity. Michel Ney, Marshall of the Empire, commanded the rear guard with about 40,000 regulars and as many as another 40,000 stragglers, Ney was twice offered the opportunity to surrender but persisted in trying to keep the Russians away from the fleeing Grand Army. When he finally rejoined Napoleon after his defeat at the Battle of Krasnoi in November his entire III Corps numbered only 800 men.
