is there a Waterloo station in England?
Yeah there is a Waterloo station, it’s the busiest in the UK.
I'm laughing to death 🤣 people in the UK know that it was because of a guy called Blücher that this battle was won? 😅🤣
Nah it was a joint thing.If you read over the full thing it was a close thing.Napoleon by the time Blucher arrived had the majority of his army killed or severely wounded, including the Imperial guard.www.waterlooassociation.org.uk/.../Let’s not forget that the plan was to easily defeat the British and then the Prussians, to have time to fight Russians and Austrians.Fully acknowledge the Prussians played a huge part, however with the core of his army defeated it was going to be simply time for the others to defeat him, likely in France.
The English probably wouldn't have won without Blucher's arrival. where Wellington was intelligent, it is that he knew how to make a heroic resistance while waiting for Blücher. Wellington recognized him himself in a letter to the Minister of War"" I must do justice to Marshal Blücher and the Prussian army, by attributing the happy result of this terrible day to the help they gave me. "
anyway it doesn't matter now 🤣
Waterloo station used to be where the Eurostar train arrived from Paris. :)Now it goes to St. Pancras International, further north.

Your joke is not that bad. Well you can believe me that for me it is the saddest day in history 🤣
And using the metric system!
Napoleon was huge into slavery. I wouldn't' call a guy who strived to reimpose slavery "badass"
@Zeldaismyqueen not something I didn't know about - When you go against the greatest empires on earth tell them and tell them to kiss your ass there is nothing that would make you less of a badass.. Especially something that in the long term benefitted such people much more than it didn't
Without the second tell them**
this girl forgets that other nations and civilizations practice slavery, that Toussaint Louverture (hero of the independence of Haiti) owns slaves and practices forced labor.
the Prussians always on the English side 🤣
It was his comeback performance; he'd already lost and been exiled to Elba.
It was an alliance of at least six countries you clearly don’t know as much as you think you know you dumbo
@Neosporin true I’ve studied eastern history more
awful dictator? 🤣
yeah remember that time he sent 20,000 soldiers to their death in Haiti so he could reimpose slavery? He was obsessed with bringing slavery back, he spent years and huge amounts of French resources trying to bring slaves back to Haiti. What a horrible awful dicator
The other nations and civilization also practice slavery, moreover you should know that the English want following the Treaty of Amiens that France put slavery in its islands so that the idea of abolition does not contaminate the English islands. Also know that Toussaint Louverture himself own slaves, and to impose forced labor.Napoleon will stop slavery in Malta and the slave trade in France in 1815When the qualification of dictator, it still does not correspond to Napoleon
France abolished slavery in the revolution, freeing all the slaves in Haiti. Napoleon wanted to "BRING IT BACK" he killed 20,000 of his own soldiers to bring back slavery.
Absolutely not, the revolution had abolished slavery only in word and on paper, but the reality was that slavery was still practiced in its islands.
I'm not sure how much you know but did you know the general he sent to Haiti with those tens of thousands of soldiers wrote Napoleon constantly saying we need to leave, slavery is gone for good, staying here will just kill every last soldier. And Napoleon said no, keep fighting until the death. He didn't care about murdering tens of thousands *of his own troops* to get slavery back. He is one of the worst people in history, near Stalin and Hitler.
You who have the good fortune to know so well, give me the name of the general, Napoleon send to Haiti? and no the general did not send a letter saying this to Napoleon c is simply impossible, because slavery could not disappear because it has always been practiced even with the French revolution. And once again the heroes of Haitian independence, the leaders had slaves
"With a view toward re-establishing slavery, Napoleon Bonaparte sent his brother-in-law, Charles Leclerc, to regain control of Haiti, along with a fleet of 86 ships and 22,000 soldiers. The Haitians resisted the soldiers, but the French were more numerous and better positioned, until the rainy season brought yellow fever. As French soldiers and officers died, black Haitian soldiers who had allied themselves with the French began to defect to the other side."
@goaded wow it’s almost like you found a source for exactly what I said… that Julia person has been brainwashed to think Napoleon wasn’t a horrible dictator who killed millions
