01/05/2015 - The Waterloo Campaign

 

Two hundred and eleven years ago, on 2nd December 1804 Napoleon Bonaparte was crowned Emperor of the French. During the ceremony in Notre Dame, The Grande Army remained camped around Boulogne, in training for what was to be one of the most astonishing series of campaigns the world has ever known. The threat of Napoleon to the remainder of the European nations meant that he was forced to abdicate. However, his exile in Elba lasted until 1815 when he returned to France which resulted in the campaign of the "Hundred Days".
