In our first ever special episode, we take an in-depth look at the Battle of Waterloo - an epic battle that brought to a close nearly 30 years of warfare in Europe after the French Revolution. In particular, we focus the three commanders in the battle: Napoleon (France); Wellington (Britain and her Allies), and Blucher (Prussia). Napoleon was meant to be finished when he was exiled to Elba but his dramatic escape in 1814 heralded the beginning of an incredible campaign and one of the biggest and most significant battles in European history. Who would come out on top in the battle and which of the three commanders would win our hearts - the genius and ambition of Napoleon, the discipline and dry wit of Wellington or the half-mad passion of Blucher?
