Napoleon: The Waterloo Campaign

Napoleon: The Waterloo Campaign

On June 18, 1815, one of the most decisive battles in military history was fought in fields ten miles southeast of Brussels. Within a short 100 days, Napoléon, former emperor of France, had returned from exile on the island of Elba, again seized power, quickly assembled an army, and marched to attack the dispersed British and Prussian armies now preparing to invade France.

Black Powder, Napoleonic Wars, Kgl 2nd Light Battalion, 28mm Warlord Games

The King's German Legion (KGL) was a British Army unit of expatriate German personnel, known for its excellent discipline and fighting ability. The Legion was formed within months of the dissolution of the Electorate of Hanover in 1803, and constituted as a mixed corps by the end of 1803. Although The Legion never fought autonomously and remained a part of the British Army during the Napoleonic Wars (1804-15), it played a vital role in several campaigns, most notably the Walcheren Campaign, the Peninsular War, and the Hundred Days (1815). At the Battle of Waterloo, the 2nd Light Battalion - with members of the 1st Light Battalion and the 5th Line Battalion - famously defended the farmhouse and road at "La Haye Sainte." As the 5th Line Battalion under Oberst Ompteda was on its way to reinforce the defenders of Haye Sainte, the French cavalry rode them down; only a few of the intended relievers survived. After a six hour defence, without ammunition, or reinforcements, the Germans were forced to abandon the farm, leaving the buildings in shambles and their dead behind.

Napoleon And The Campaign Of 1815 : Waterloo: Napoleon And The Campaign Of 1815 : Waterloo

Napoleon And The Campaign Of 1815 : Waterloo: Napoleon And The Campaign Of 1815 : Waterloo

The Waterloo campaign, short as it was, was epic in its scope, encompassing as it did the downfall of the great Napoleon; the one and only clash between Bonaparte and Wellington, and the inauguration of a century ( give or take short localised wars) of general European peace. And Waterloo has left plenty of material for historians to argue over: why did Wellington not aid his Prussian ally Blucher at Ligny? Why did Marshal Ney do nothing on the morning of Quatre- Bras? Why was Napoleon so uncharacteristically lethargic on the eve of Waterloo? What happened to Marshal Grouchy ( deputed to keep off the Prussians) on the day of Waterloo? These and many other strategic matters are fully considered by Henry Houssayed in this second volume of his two-volume classic history of Napoleon’s penultimate (1814, France) and ultimate campaigns. Illustrated by finely drawn battle maps, this is one that will keep Napoleonic addicts arguing for a long time yet.

1804-1807 French Napoleonic Infantry (60) 28mm Victrix Ltd

1804-1807 French Napoleonic Infantry (60) 28mm Victrix Ltd

In 1804 Napoleon declared himself Emperor of the French. This ignited a new wave of conflict throughout Europe, which only ended with Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo in 1815. The French infantry from 1804 to 1807 fought a series of arduous but victorious campaigns. They trounced the Russians and Austrians at the battle of Austerlitz in 1805, and humbled the mighty Prussians at the joint battles of Jena and Auerstadt in 1806. Advancing into Poland they fought the Russians to a bloody draw on the snowy fields of Eylau, before forcing them to sue for peace after the great French victory at Friedland.

Waterloo 1815 (2): Ligny (Campaign)

Waterloo 1815 (2): Ligny (Campaign)

Waterloo 1815 is a captivating study of the battle of Waterloo, one of the defining campaigns in European history. In particular it focuses on the desperate struggle for Ligny, which saw the Prussians pushed back after heavy fighting by the French Army in what was to be Napoleon's last battlefield victory. With Wellington unable to assist his Prussian allies in time, the Prussian centre was overwhelmed as night began to fall, although the flanks were able to retreat in some semblance of order. Stunning illustrations augment the drama of the fighting in this area while considerable new research drawn from unpublished first-hand accounts provide a detailed and engaging resource for all aspects of the battle.

Waterloo: The Campaign of 1815. Volume I: From Elba to Ligny and Quatre Bras

Waterloo: The Campaign of 1815. Volume I: From Elba to Ligny and Quatre Bras

Shortlisted for Military History Monthly's "Book of the Year" AwardThe first of two groundbreaking volumes on the Waterloo campaign, this book is based upon a detailed analysis of sources old and new in four languages. It highlights the political stresses between the Allies, and their resolution; it studies the problems of feeding and paying for 250,000 Allied forces assembling in Belgium during the ‘undeclared war’, and how a strategy was thrashed out. It studies the neglected topic of how the slow and discordant Allies beyond the Rhine hampered the plans of Blücher and Wellington, thus allowing Napoleon to snatch the initiative from them. Napoleon’s operational plan is analyzed (and Soult's mistakes in executing it). Accounts from both sides help provide a vivid impression of the fighting on the first day, 15 June, and the volume ends with the joint battles of Ligny and Quatre Bras the next day.See:

Waterloo: The Truth At Last: Why Napoleon Lost the Great Battle

Waterloo: The Truth At Last: Why Napoleon Lost the Great Battle

During October 2016 Paul Dawson visited French archives in Paris to continue his research surrounding the events of the Napoleonic Wars. Some of the material he examined had never been accessed by researchers or historians before, the files involved having been sealed in 1816\. These seals remained unbroken until Paul was given permission to break them to read the contents.Forget what you have read about the battle on the Mont St Jean on 18 June 1815; it did not happen that way. The start of the battle was delayed because of the state of the ground – not so. Marshal Ney destroyed the French cavalry in his reckless charges against the Allied infantry squares – wrong. The stubborn defense of Hougoumont, the key to Wellington’s victory, where a plucky little garrison of British Guards held the farmhouse against the overwhelming force of Jerome Bonaparte’s division and the rest of II Corps – not true. Did the Union Brigade really destroy d’Erlon’s Corps, did the Scots Greys actually attack a massed French battery, did La Haie Sainte hold out until late in the afternoon?All these and many more of the accepted stories concerning the battle are analysed through accounts (some 200 in all) previously unpublished, mainly derived through French sources, with startling conclusi...
