Napoleonic Wars (1803-1815) (5/6)

List item

The Napoleonic Wars was the biggest armed conflict that Europe had ever seen, pitting esteemed military genius Napoleon, then the Emperor of France, against almost the entirety of Europe – and he almost won! While the Napoleonic Wars were certainly more devastating for the continental countries with France, for example, losing around one million soldiers, the losses for Britain were still massive. It has been estimated that roughly one hundred thousand British soldiers were dead or missing after the wars’ conclusion, and many of the survivors returned to poor living and economic conditions.
