The Battle of Waterloo - June 1815

The Waterloo campaign of 1815 was without exception the most famous of the Nineteenth century. It was to culminate in the final overthrow of Napoleon Bonaparte and the end of twenty five years of warfare. Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of the French and one time master of the largest European empire since Rome, had marched against Brussels in order to defeat the first of the Allied armies before the others could attack. To oppose Napoleon' s advance, two of the Allied armies were assembling. The first being basically Anglo-Dutch and commanded by the Duke of Wellington. The Duke, was already victor in the earlier Peninsular War, a major factor in Napoleon's earlier defeat and abdication. The final confrontation on the 18th June was both climactic and costly in casualties: over 80,000 combined forces fell that day. It is now possible to share in the power struggle between these two powerful tacticians with the Napoleonic Chess Set. This way the outcome does not always have to be as it was on that fateful day
