Waterloo - The Prussian Army Arrives on the French Right Flank and Turns the Tide of Battle!

After a long day's battle between Napoleon's French army, and the Anglo/Allied army under Wellington, the beleaguered British/Dutch/Belgian/Brunswick forces were near the breaking point. Napoleon's massed artillery batteries were tearing the allied regiments to shreds, and the French light infantry were slowly but surely whittling down the remaining allied troops with a constant hail of fire.

Victory was within Napoleon's grasp. He had only to send in his reserves, the famed Imperial Guard, and they would annihilate the weakened allies.

But just as the emperor was about to launch this final assault the vanguard of the Prussian army, allied to the British, initiated a hammering attack on the French right flank. Blucher, the Prussian commander, has promised Wellington that he would come, and Wellington had been waiting since dawn for this to occur. For the first time in hours the British/Dutch/Belgian/Brunswick army dared to hope for a French defeat.

In order to hold off the Prussian attack Napoleon was forced to pare away some of the best troops in his army to face the German threat. First the emperor sent in his "Young Guard," which temporarily held off the Prussians. But the French were too few and were soon overwhelmed by the ever-increasing numbers of the German troops. Desperate, Napoleon had to reinforce his first force with his "Old Guard," with whom he had been planning to finish Wellington off.

Napoleon's veterans did their job, but this left his final attack against the British so weakened that, for the very first time in all of his decades of campaigning, his beloved Guard failed. The British and Prussians pursued the now-broken remnants of the French army and forever ended Napoleon's reign.

This playset features Napoleon's attempt to hold off Field Marshal Blucher's Prussians, who have arrived on the field to save their British allies from defeat.
