“He that makes war without many mistakes has not made war very long” (Napoleon – Emperor of the French)
Two hundred years ago Napoleon was facing his destiny. Declared an outlaw by the Congress of Vienna, he had no choice but to attack before the Seventh Coalition became too organized and overpowered him. The French army was composed of battle-hardened soldiers who had previously fought other campaigns, while the Prussians and multinational troops commanded by Wellington were partly untrained and poorly equipped. Napoleon was holding all the cards… but we all know the final result!
