Stuff you know

Until Waterloo, Napolean and the Duke of Wellington had never faced each other on a battlefield.

Two of the greatest field generals and tacticians, not only of their time, but in history, were contemporaries, antagonists, and enemies. Yet they fought only one battle.

It was, for the most part evenly matched, right up until the end when the Prussians showed up on the French flank.
