verb-tense error with "they"
"they" incorrectly refers to "Napolean's army"


(B) their previous campaigns had had
verb-tense error with "their"
"their" incorrectly refers to "Napolean's army"
incorrect use of "had had"


(C) they had for any previous campaign
verb-tense error with "they"
"they" incorrectly refers to "Napolean's army"


(D) in their previous campaigns
verb-tense error with "their"
"their" incorrectly refers to "Napolean's army"


(E) for any previous campaign
Correct. "It" correctly modifies "Napolean's army"

Army is singular here !!hence all choices except E get eliminated.

IMO E
