Great report and some lovely pictures. I really enjoyed reading that. I’m starting to really look forward to your re-fight of the whole battle. Among your group what is the betting on who is going to win?
PS. Hougoumont and the Violets sound more indie rock than jazz funk to me (but definitely third-rate).
The betting on who is going to win? Well the more research I do for this project the more I realise the French had lost the War by Quatre Bras. Having to attack troops established on good defensive terrain with a marginal superiority of 1.25 to 1? You wouldn’t get a pass at Staff College!
