From 16th  to 18th  June the French troops and

the Allied troops clashed on  battlefields of Belgium. The battles of Ligny and

Quatre Bras were only the proem of the most famous and well-known battle of the

military history. A date and a place : 18th June 1815, Waterloo. Wellington

considered the farm of La Haie Sainte a strategic point of his defensive line.

In the afternoon, Napoleon ordered to Marshal Ney to launch the assault to the

farm in order to obtain a significant outpost. The farm was strenuously defended

by Allied troops, that had fortified the buildings since the morning. The clash

was fierce and the French troops, supported by artillery, were able to conquer

La Haie Sainte only in the late afternoon. At 7 p.m. , thanks to the strategic

value of the farm, the French Imperial Guard can start the assault but it is too

late. Prussian troops leaded by Blucher, vainly searched by Marshal Grouchy,

break on the battlefield to support British Army.
