Here's a real moment from the fighting in and around the Chateau Hougoumont during the battle of Waterloo. The British defended the large walled Hougoumont farmhouse with one of their best regiments - The Coldstream Guards. Standing on improvised firing platforms to shoot over walls, and digging numerous loopholes through the walls to add more muskets to their volleys, the British held off repeated assaults. The only way the French could gain entry into the Chateau was through the stout wooden gate, and it seemed as if they were never going to get in. But then a huge French officer, Lieutenant LeGros, showed up with a large axe. Covered by his men's gunfire, LeGros hacked open the thick oak doors and led the way into the courtyard. There, in a desperate hand to hand battle, LeGros, swinging his axe, tried to lead his men in gaining a toehold so the main French force could follow. But the stalwart British Guards managed to hold off the attackers. Slamming the doors shut and wedging them closed, the Guards finished off the French assault party, killing the brave LeGros in the fight. (Production year: 2007)This gently-used set was displayed in a glass case, then returned to its original box. It is in store-fresh, near-mint condition.
