It was a career ending event for a European head of state and an epoch event in world history. It was written about also as a part of military history, It is a centerpiece for numerous novels.
Napoleon was more concerned with Grand Strategy and Logistics, though mainly logistics, having stated famously that amateurs talked about strategy, and professionals about logistics. In terms of tactics, Napoleon used highly mobile artillery concentrated in numbers at the front, and infantry advancing quickly in column (most other armies fought defensively in line). His usual approach was to shatter the enemy's strongest point with a hammer blow and then mop up in detail. Barring this, his versatility allowed him to use any number of other approaches when appropriate. For example, a total encirclement at Ulm.
The Seventh Coalition were in the process of gathering their Armies together to march on Paris. The Russian Army had not yet arrived and it was essential for Napoleon to defeat them one at a time before the force was combined and became unstoppable (When combined it would exceed 600,000 troops.)
Napoleon had been named an outlaw by the Congress of Vienna and the Coalition was determined to end Napoleon and the Napoleonic Wars. This they accomplished by Napoleon's defeat at Waterloo.
Napoleon landed on and took Malta on June 10, 1798, overwhelming the weak resistance of its garrison of 1.200 men. Then, during the following 5 days he reshaped every aspect of the way of life of the island. The Order of the Knights of St. John was abolished and all its members, with exception of those who agreed to join the French Army, were deported. Furthermore he set up the guidelines of a new Constitution, reformed the island's economy and created a new system of public education. The treasures of the Order were confiscated and about 7 millions of francs were destined to fill up the coffer of Napoleon's expeditionary force.
The Battle of Corunna was a holding action to enable most of the British Army to escape from a more powerful French Army. The action was successful from the British side but at a cost!
It was a success from the French side in that it rid them of a troublesome flea, but one which would return.
It could be viewed in the same way as Dunkirk of 1940.
If your question is related to the Napoleonic Wars, the phrase is referred to the duration of Napoleon's last period of reign and also to his last military campaign.
Battlefield casualties (or Body bag Counts) are notoriously inaccurate, often flawed, sometimes falsified, sometimes classified, routinely inflated, frequently unreported and most often hidden away in some archive for decades. Today such figures are routinely reported because they are difficult to conceal from the free press. In wars where decent battlefield medicine was practiced, wounded may as well be counted as dead.
Waterloo was a major loss of troop strength for Napoleon and France with as many as 25,000 killed or wounded, 8,000 captured and 15,000 listed as missing. Missing at that time probably included a 50% straggler count, a 40% desertion number, and perhaps a 10% figure for killed, body not recovered.
Wellington and Gebhard von Blucher fared better with only 22,000 reported as dead or wounded.
It was the last battle of the Napoleonic Wars and lead to Napoleon's exile at St. Helena.
The French won the '''battle of Jena''' in 1806 against the Prussian Army.
To win, it was essential to keep the Armies ot the Seventh Coalition at a distance from each other and take them on one at a time.
(1899-1902), the British wanted to get their hands on the gold and diamonds discovered in South-Africa and due to the fast and wealthy development could just not sit on the side to see a country who unlike others, where they banned and exported peopled branded as thief's and murderers to Australia and America to prosper with the possibility to surpass them and where they were able to take possession.
British had modern weapons at their disposal at that time (The best available)and the Boers were the first to implement what was called Guerilla Warfare. A handful of Boer men were in so able to create chaos and destruction on British troops, a method that was not known at that time and eventually adapted by the British. another factor was that the Boer men was able to stay in the bush for long periods of time and be able to adapt almost instantly to the environment due to the situation they were placed in.
the British had no choice than to made use of German methods of warfare by placing the remaining families in concentration camps. sad to say that the war against the British and Boers were also against their own as the Boers were from European origin.
Full and true history is available when visiting the Voortrekker Monument in the Voortrekker Hoogte (Renamed to Thaba-Tswhane meaning "place of the mountain") in Pretoria South-Africa. True shocking detail and video clips are exposing true events of the wars and how the war ended. Although the British was approached and was allowed to leave victorious, no one won in the war as the Boers did this to save their families and was the first to negotiate other options rather than to continue with a war with more bloodshed on their hands. Especially where they were at war with their own as ultimately they were from Europe and in such allot of British were at war with British just because of the land and wealth.

The Russian Army was still on the march.
During the Napoleonic wars, a French ship was wrecked on the English coast near Hartlepool. The only survivor was a monkey, which was wearing a French uniform (no doubt to provide amusement for those on board the ship). On finding the monkey, some locals decided to hold an impromptu trial on the beach. Since the monkey was unable to answer their questions they decided it was a French spy. It was sentenced to death and hanged from the mast of a fishing boat. To this day it has remained a source of embarrassment to the inhabitants of Hartlepool, a minority of whom consider the term "Monkey-hanger" offensive. (Answer from Wikipedia)
Hartlepool have since became known for the stupid mistake that had been made and therefore have to pay. The monkey had no choice on its future of life and therefore it was unfair and the wrong thing to do.
It was never a monkey. Little boys who lived on war ships at the time were called powder monkeys. These children ran the gun powder from the magazine to the cannons. The story is about a French child who washed up ashore and the local fisherman thought he was a French spy. Any French man, woman or child to be found walking the coast line of England at the time would of bin hanged too. People from Hartlepool have mixed reactions to being called monkey hangers. The local football teams mascot is H'angus the monkey and the Mayor campaigned in a monkey suit and won.

Napoleon Bonaparte biggest mistake when he invaded Russia was the army he used was not all French and they had little loyalty to Napoleon (420,000 troops) and since Napoleons army depended on the food of the land Russia used the scorch earth policy and Napoleon and his troops left in the winter, freezing and cold, when they arrived back to France Napoleon was left with 10,000 troops 410k died on the way back.
Napoleon's biggest mistake was that of refusing to retreat from Moscow after the city was set on fire on Sept. 15-17,1812. The Russian had scorched the earth all around the city for a radius of 150 kilometers. Therefore there were no source of provisions at disposal.
Had he retreated from Moscow until the end of September he would have the opportunity to near the deposits of supplies, gathering the garrisons left behind and shorten the front before the winter had come. But it seemed he was living outside of the reality, lulling himself into the false illusion that the Tsar would have agreed to make the peace accepting the defeat. Therefore some 20 precious and decisive days were lost, with the well known consequences.

It was on 18 June 1815.
Wars were changed some time ago to go for 16 hrs and a person can now start and have a war started on them simultaneously. Both scenarios have separate timers before resetting
The British did not recognize the right of people to become naturalized citizens of a country that they had not been born in. Thus, the British considered any naturalized American citizen, who had been born in Great Britain, not to be an American citizen but a subject of the British Crown.
Since conscription was the norm in Britain for all male subjects of the Crown, any subject of the Crown found on the high seas was subject to conscription.
In other words, if you were born in Britain, you were subject to the British military draft, no matter where on earth the British Government found you or what country you called home.
The battle of Jena.
Civilian deaths are impossible to accurately estimate. Whilst military deaths are invariably put at between 2.5 million and 3.5 million, civilian death tolls vary from 750,000 to 3 million. Thus estimates of total dead, both military and civilian, can reasonably range from 3,250,000 to 6,500,000.
Impressment was designed to provide the Royal Navy with enough men to man the many ships by using "press gangs". These groups of seamen led by a junior officer or mate would travel to various towns hoping to collect enough men to fill their ship with the required number of crewmen by any means necessary.
Truthfully the answer to this question is really based on how you look at it.
My view is yes. I believe that if we did not have a civil war we would be split or possibly made part of some other country like France. Our nation's army was divided in half so if another country tried to attack, we would have been murdered due to the fact that we didn't have the man power we needed to withstand such an attack. Since the North won the war, they required for the South to promise never split from the Union. Now we have a nation who has the strongest military power and the strongest government in the world.
Other people may say that Civil Was was not needed. They believe that either one of two things would have happened. One would be that America would be a country with slaves. The other possibility is that people would have realized that slavery couldn't last forever.
So whether or not it was just depends how you look at it.
