The Battle of Waterloo was fought as part of the Napoleonic Wars and it was at
Waterloo (a village south of Brussels in Belgium) that Napoleon Bonaparte’s French soldiers met the armies of Britain and Prussia. The battle took place on 18th June 1815 and the year 2015 saw the Bicentenary of this famous Battle.
The Battle of Waterloo began with Napoleon’s 72,000 men facing the Duke of Wellington’s army of 68,000 men. Wellington had British, Dutch, Belgian and German soldiers on his side, but was expecting even more when the 45,000 Prussian soldiers arrived. Eventually the Prussians began to arrive and Napoleon was forced to send groups of his soldiers to try and stop the Prussians from being able to join up with Wellington’s forces.
By early evening it was apparent that the French were losing so instead of defending their position, Wellington ordered his soldiers to attack and the French army began to run away. Four days after this famous Battle, Napoleon gave up power and was exiled to the island of St Helena.
