The Waterloo Campaign 1815

Map 1


You think Wellington should expect any attack to be against his front. His front is more than fifty miles of open lowland crossed by plenty of good paved roads suitable for troops and artillery, though fortified by several barrier fortresses. He might well expect attack at some point along such a front. But Wellington has always been a good defensive fighter and does not fear his ability to hold a frontal attack, if it comes, until Blücher can reinforce him. On the other hand, Wellington is much more sensitive about his lines of communication with his base on the coast.
