This series of documentaries is a major project that will chart the entire 1815 Waterloo Campaign in detail from Napoleon s return to France through the various battles and engagements to the pursuit to Paris and Napoleon s final abdication. The whole suite will total over five hours of programmes. Each of the four disks will contain three separate programmes that concentrates on aspects of the campaign or phases of the great battle itself. Each programme is filmed on the ground where the particular phase of battle was fought making this a unique project that fuses tactics and ground in a readily understood way with re-enactment and lavish use of both maps and diagrams. Vignettes provided by living historians illustrate the life of the Napoleonic soldier, along with his weapons and tactics. This disc will contain programmes that explain the battlefield and the opposing plans, followed by programmes covering the opening attack on Hougoumont complex and the bombardment of Wellington s position, the attack of D Erlon s Corps and the charge of the Union Brigade.
