Background Info For The Battle of Waterloo:
The Battle of Waterloo was part of the Napoleonic Wars. It was at Waterloo (a village south of Brussels in Belgium) that Napoleon Bonaparte’s French soldiers met the armies of Britain and Prussia. Notably, the battle took place on 18th June 1815. Thus, the year 2015 saw the Bicentenary of this famous Battle.
Moreover, 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 he was expecting even more when the 45,000 Prussian soldiers arrived. Eventually the Prussians began to arrive. Therefore, Napoleon sent groups of his soldiers to try to 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. Then the European Powers exiled him to the island of St Helena.
