Epic Battles: WATERLOO - La Haye Sainte Sandpit & Barricade
Sunday, 18 June 1815; on an unassuming rain-soaked field in Belgium; two great generals of the age finally met in battle. The climactic clash of the Hundred Days campaign wrought the end of around twenty years of continuous warfare on the continent, and with it an end to the reign of Napoleon. The Battle of Waterloo, arguably the most famous battle in all military history, provides more than a fitting subject for our second foray into the 'Epic' scale of wargaming. Black Powder Epic Battles: Waterloo is here.
Men of the 95th Rifles stationed themselves in a sandpit across the chausee in stoic defence of the vital (and itself highly defensible) position of La Haye Sainte. Their position resulted in deadly crossfires being perpetrated against the assaulting French. Meanwhile a makeshift barricade was thrown up against the main gate – the British using anything available to make their defensive positions more favourable.
