Battle of Waterloo

On June 18, 1815, Napoleon led his 72,000-strong army into battle with 120,000 mostly British and Prussian soldiers on the fields near the Belgian village of Waterloo, about 9 miles (14 kilometres) south of Brussels. The battle ended 23 years of recurrent warfare between France and the other powers of Europe.
