What really happened that June 18th 1815 when European history changed forever? This rigorously researched graphic novel recounts the entire chronology of events through the fate – and the point of vue – of several symbolic characters: a member of Napoleon’s Old Guard, an English soldier, a military doctor, a Prussian drummer, a troop follower, and a local farmwife. Of course, you will also come across Napoleon Bonaparte, the Duke of Wellington, the Prince of Orange, and Field Marshal Blücher. The album was created by Mor, a veteran illustrator of historical graphic novels and by scriptwriter Thierry Bonneyrat under the direction of Patrice Courcelle, world-renowned history expert.
Completing it is 16 pages of documentation which include unusual or unknown major and minor facts of this historic day.
An in-depth view of the most famous battle of all time.
