Overview

Battle of Waterloo by Russell Roberts

Waterloo was the climax of The Hundred Days, that remarkable period when Napoleon returned from exile on Elba and once again seized control of France. Waterloo was like a giant chessboard for both Napoleon and his opponent Wellington; both made strategic maneuvers knowing that not just their futures; but the futture of Europe and maybe even the world, were at stake.

Why was Napoleona so sonfident of victory at waterloo that he dertached thousands of men on another mission? what strategy did Wellington use to disguise the strength of his forces? What strategy did Napoléon employ that wound Up costing him instead? These and other questions are what make the Battle of Waterloo so facinating to examine.
