The French Revolution and the worldwide conflict that ensued,
which was only brought to an end by The Battle of Waterloo, retains
a continuing fascination to this day. It was arguably the first modern
global war, involving huge armies, and fought on land and sea. During
this weekend we will cover a range of subjects including Waterloo itself,
with a re-assessment of the struggle for Hougoumont farm, the battle
within a battle; and Grouchy’s failure to arrive at Waterloo. On the
210th anniversary we will look at Wellington’s campaign into southern
France while Napoleon fought his own campaign in the north-east.
We will also look at the Intelligence service in Wellington’s army in the
Peninsula 1808-14; the performance of the French cavalry 1800-1815;
and the contribution of British combined operations.
