Napoleon escaped from exile on Elba today to begin the famous Hundred Days. His return caused quite an uproar and the War of the 7th Coalition began on March 13th. IMO, The Ogre, as he was called, had no chance of victory. Even if he had won at Waterloo (which nearly happened) I don't think France could have sustained the effort.

Napoleonic uniforms and pageantry always thrilled me as a child. Re-fighting Waterloo and Quatre Bras with my ESCI brand toy soldiers was loads of fun. :smiley:
