On a damp, overcast Sunday in June 1815, twenty years of continuous warfare the Napoleonic Wars came to a violent and bloody conclusion on a rain-soaked field in Belgium. These wars were in reality a world affair, with European powers fighting battles not only on the mainland of Europe but so far as India, Egypt, the Caribbean and The usa. The greatest generals of the age in the end faced each and every other on the field of battle; The Duke of Wellington, rooted to a little-known ridge, faced, the Emperor of the French. Napoleon Bonaparte, master of the attack, opposed brigades of British, Germans, Dutch and Belgians; brigades of an infamous army that, in spite of horrific casualties, clung to the ridge for over nine hours to make sure that the arrival of Blucher’s Prussian army would put the Duke victory beyond doubt. The Battle of Waterloo became a true landmark in military history, one if you want to never fade, and nothing on this sort of grand scale would be seen again.
