Four Days To Change The World!!!
On 18 June 1815, south of the small Belgian hamlet Waterloo in what was then
the Kingdom of the Netherlands, occurred one of the most decisive battles of
history. Napoleon Bonaparte hoped to destroy the coalition armies arrayed
against him by means of a quick, decisive campaign. His plan was to defeat in
detail each of his main antagonists, the Anglo-Allied army under Field Marshal
the Duke of Wellington, and the Prussian army under Generalfeldmarschall
Gebhard Leberecht Fuerst Bluecher von Wahlstatt. While this campaign
encompassed several months of the spring and summer of 1815, and ranged all
along the wide flung frontiers of France, the four days of the Waterloo
campaign, from the crossing of the Netherlands border by Napoleons
Armée du Nord on 15 June, the indecisive actions at Quatres Bras, Ligny
and Wavre, and the disastrous French defeat at the hands of the combined
Anglo-Allied and Prussian armies on 18 June, decided the fate of the emperor,
and by implication, the Empire. But now you have the opportunity to take
command in this great campaign and change the course of history.
