Join us on June 20, 2019, for a lecture with James Istvanffy where he unpacks the battle that led to the defeat one of the greatest generals in history. The Battle of Waterloo on June 18, 1815 was one of the most decisive battles in history where the French under Napoleon Bonaparte battled British forces under the Duke of Wellington south of Brussels, Belgium.

The hard-fought battle saw the arrival of the Prussian Army under Field Marshal Blucher which greatly tipped the scales against the French. Waterloo was the end of an era - the last major engagement of a long series of wars and over 70 major battles.
