Cannonballs and grapeshot from the battlefield at Waterloo

-

On June 18, 1815, 191,300 soldiers fought at Waterloo, one of history’s most decisive and analyzed battles. Some 72,000 French faced 67,000 troops commanded by Britain’s Duke of Wellington and another 53,000 under Prussia’s General Blücher. The debate will continue forever as to what might have changed the course of events, but at the end of the day, 48,000 men were killed or severely wounded, and Blücher and Wellington had achieved final victory over Napoléon.
