The Little Waterloo by

June 1815. Everything seems quiet in the countryside around Waterloo. In Brussels the Dutchess of Richmond holds a ball the night of the 15th. But what is happening? The French are coming. There is the Battle of Quatre-Bras and of Ligny. It is pouring down with rain the following day. Around 11:30, the Hougoumont farm is attacked, then it's Papeolotte and Haie Sainte's turn...The cavalry intervenes: charge! Who are the heroes of the last stand? Meeting with Napoleon, Ney, Wellington, Bucher in their headquarters. Did the Battle of Waterloo change the history of Europe? Who built the Lion's Mound and what does it mean?
