Napoleon - An Intimate Portrait


“The Battle of Wagram”

“The Battle of Wagram”

Carle Vernet -

The Battle of Wagram in early July 1809 was Napoléon’s last great military victory. Once again, he demonstrated an ability to instantly assess battlefield developments and act decisively. But it was nearly a fiasco, and was one of the bloodiest battles in history, costing 34,000 French and 50,000 Austrian lives. One historian has called Wagram “two days of competitive homicide.”
