The battle of Waterloo took place on June 18 1815, Belgium. This was the place where Napoleon had finally met defeat. The two forces in this historic battle were the French against the Russians and Prussians. Napoleon didn’t lose just because of the enemy’s power. Many attacks had besieged France before this, weakening his army. It was said that Napoleon was so obsessed with winning that he cried when he was defeated in the Battle of Waterloo.
The war was fought between the French and the alliance of the Russians+Prussians. As Napoleon came back from abdication to lead the people of France once again. He trained 72,000 men and took them to the great Battle of Waterloo. The Russians only had 68,000 troops and were outnumbered. During the war, at some time the Prussians came with 30,000 more troops. The French fled but suffered 33,000 casualties in deaths, prisoners, or injured.
After returning from the battle, Napoleon was once again abdicated and left on the remote British-held island of Saint Helens. He was sent there not for just his defeats, but his choice to continue with war and choose bad commanders. He later died of stomach cancer at age 51. In my humble opinion napoleon was completely absurd thinking that he could just go off to war. He was obsessed with war – it almost seemed like it was entertaining to him. If I was Napoleon I’d stop going to war and start actually leading my people. They need someone to guide them.
