The Battle of Waterloo (18 June 1815) was Napoleon’s final defeat, ending 23 years of recurrent warfare between France and the other powers of Europe. It was fought south of Waterloo village in Belgium, between Napoleon’s forces and the combined forces of Arthur Wellesley’s allied army of 68,000 (with British, Dutch, Belgian, and German units) and about 45,000 Prussians, the main force of Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher’s command.
