This docu-drama tells the story of the Battle of Waterloo, one of the most famous military campaigns in history. Within four days it changed the face of Europe, ending the systematic use of arms and the French domination of the Continent. In 1815, Austria, Prussia, Russia and the United Kingdom had allied themselves to end the rule of one of the greatest commanders and statesmen in history, Napoleon Bona-parte. At this point, he was considered a military genius, and was the ruler of most Western European countries. Hour by hour, even minute by minute in some cases, each decisive event of the battle is depicted. Historians discuss contradictions and inexplicable behaviour, to separate myth from truth, based on the most recent research findings. Beyond the historical facts, we discover how the Waterloo Campaign was experienced by the men involved, its key figures; Napoleon, the Duke of Wellington (the Allies' Field Marshal) and Blucher (Head of the Prussian Army), members of chiefs-of-staff and by the soldiers in both camps.
