  1. Where did they get this narrator from? From the mountain jungle of New Guinea? The way he pronounces foreign names is horrible. I always asked myself "who in God's name is he talking about now"?

  2. Yes but what would come after Brussels? The British would remain and enemy and the Prussians, Austrians, Russia would continue plotting while Spain would be insurrectionist. No end in sight, no successful outcome even if battle was won.

  3. Wellington has most of his campaign in the Iberia Peninsula, leading the British-Portuguese Army against the French Armies. It annoying how so many people still think the spanish defeated the french… as a matter of fact, the spanish were allies of the french, aiding them in TWO invasions of Portugal. On the second invasion the Portuguese King D. João VI moved the capital to Rio de Janeiro, and leaving his generals and governors fighting the french. The british arrived and defeated the french. Napoleon kicked the 2 spanish kings and used his brother to rule the spanish. This made the spanish revolt and a spanish army entered the war agains the french. Portugal did not have his army at Waterloo because the Portuguese were expecting another war with Spain, and the army stayed at Portugal. Portugal lost 10% of his population fighting the french, and half of the country was destroyed. The portuguese did the same thing as the russian did in Moscow, to prevent the 4th french invasion to have sucess.

  4. Oh please. It was all the fault of French traitors and if French generals had followed orders Napoleon would be master of the world. You confuse intention with probability. It might have been Napoleon's intention to occupy Brussels but it doesn't follow that it would have been probable or even possible. This is the sort of thing that gives history a bad name; speculative projection into the fanciful. And whilst we're at it. could the commentary with its squeaky octave hopping inflections be anymore annoying?

  5. Since the narrator does not speak French, his attempts at pronouncing the French names are never quite correct. In that situation it makes more sense just to anglicize the names entirely.
