key here 'army' is singular subject

'it had' correctly specifies this.

so only E - best.

(A) they had in their previous campaigns
(B) their previous campaigns had had
(C) they had for any previous campaign
(D) in their previous campaigns
(E) for any previous campaign correct
from A to D number is wrong with pronoiun, Army is singular(collective noun)

is option E gramatically correct gents?

entered russia with far more supplies than for any previous campaign.

looks like far more supplies is being compared with previous campaigns I suppose. Am I right on this?

I went with D, but i see my mistake (thanks to rajeevrks27 explanation).

A, B & C are wrong because Napleon's Army is singular.

Edit: add D to that too.

Army is singular, So only option E is correct. All other choices have they/their referring to army.
