Summary
Fought on Sunday 18th June 1815 by some 220,000 men over rain-sodden ground in what is now Belgium, the Battle of Waterloo brought an end to 23 years of almost continual war between revolutionary and later imperial France and her enemies. A decisive defeat for Napoleon and a hard-won victory for the Allied armies of the Duke of Wellington and the Prussians led by the stalwart Blücher, it brought about the French emperor's final exile to St Helena and cleared the way for Britain to become the dominant world power. This history of the Battle of Waterloo details the campaign and the battle, its armies and their commanders, and brings fresh insight to this epic conflict
