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 truly a world affair, with
European powers fighting battles not only on the mainland of Europe but
as far as India, Egypt, the Caribbean and America.
The greatest generals of the age finally faced each 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, despite horrific casualties, clung to
the ridge for over nine hours to ensure that the arrival of Blücher's
Prussian army would put the DukeǃÙs victory beyond doubt.
The Battle of Waterloo became a true landmark in miltary history, one
that will never fade, and nothing on such a grand scale would be seen
