Description

Waterloo captures the excitement of the early 19th century battle with all the color, pomp, and pageantry of the Napoleonic era. Take command of Napoleon's troops or Wellington's army and change history in this epic game based on the award-winning Sid Meier's Gettysburg engine. Waterloo accurately depicts Napoleonic warfare in one of the most famous battles of all time.

A la Gloire!! To Glory!! After spending the night in the rain, soldiers in Wellington's Anglo-Allied Army dried their guns and looked across the muddy fields. The French Army was preparing to attack. Everyone on both sides expected it to be a day of brutal combat-except for one man. The Emperor of France, Napoleon Bonaparte, told his generals, "This affair will be no more serious than eating one's breakfast." He expected to defeat the Allies near Waterloo and enter Brussels in triumph by nightfall. Starting before noon, the battle raged fiercely for five hours. Then the Prussian Army arrived to aid Wellington. Five hours later, the French Army was broken and retreated in disorder. Napoleon had "met his Waterloo." Nearly 190,000 soldiers fought in one of the most decisive battles in the history of Europe on June 18, 1815... now it's your turn to take command!
