Bounded by the cities of Brussels, Charleroi, Namur and also the River Sambre, this is a detailed plan of the battle of Waterloo. The commentary is divided into three battle headings: Fleurus, Ligny and Mont St. Jean and provides the key to the various armies with their regiments. Napoleon Bonaparte did not wish to fight a combined army of the English, Dutch and Marshall Blucher's Prussian forces on one field. If he could first defeat the Prussians on their own, he might go on to win against the combined English/Dutch Army. He succeeded in weakening the Prussian forcres at Ligny, but they were by no means destroyed. But Wellington and Blucher believed they must fight Napoleon side by side. So Blucher's battered army set out after Ligny to fulfill the existing plan of joining Wellington and his troops. The rest is history ... Originally sold by Daims "Marchand Des Etampes." Trimmed to the neatline.
