Napoleon 1813: Battle of the Nations



👉Sign up for your FREE trial to The Great Courses Plus here:

In October 1813 Napoleon faced the combined might of the Sixth Coalition (Russia, Austria, Prussia, Sweden) near Leipzig, in what would prove to be the decisive battle of his career. Outnumbered, virtually encircled, Napoleon opted for a high-risk strategy of striking against Scwarzenberg’s Army of Bohemia, before the other Coalition armies could come to his aid. The four-day Battle of Leipzig would be the largest and bloodiest battle in European history before the First World War, and one that changed the destiny of Europe.

  • I hope you enjoy the latest video in our Napoleonic Wars series! As far as I'm aware, this is now the most detailed coverage of the Battle of Leipzig in an English-language documentary. It's a very neglected battle, particularly among English-speakers, but deserves to be much better known and understood. Not only was it fought on a vast scale, but this is where Napoleon's empire suffered its mortal blow.

    Please check out our sponsor The Great Courses Plus, as one way to support the channel, or our merch shop or Patreon page. See the video description for recommended books and track listings.

    For those interested in details: for the battle, I've used a VERY rough scale of 1 big block (of 4 smaller blocks) = 1 infantry division, or roughly 5,000 troops. That means a small block is roughly half a brigade / 2-3 battalions, or 1,250 troops. For artillery, roughly 1 cannon icon = 50 guns (in reality, of course, guns were much more widely dispersed across the battlefield). For cavalry, the scale is roughly double that of infantry, so one big block = 2,500 cavalry. However cavalry operated in much smaller formations than this, so they, plus smaller units and skirmishers, should be thought of as operating in most of the gaps between units on the map. For anyone interested in detailed orders-of-battle for Leipzig, I recommend this page from The Napoleon Series: https://www.napoleon-series.org/military/battles/leipzig/c_leipzigoob6.html

  • How was Bernadotte ever made a Marshall of France??
    He seems better at avoiding battle then actually fighting one.
    He failed to do anything at Jena-Auserstedt – failed at Wagram – and now did not do much here.

  • There is NO PANDEMIC. In fact there ARE NO malign 'VIRUSES' – it's ALL LIES! And here's why, EXPLAINED in detail, no stones unturned. The supremacist genocidal global elite want the rest of us dead, and 'covid-blabla' is a vital part of that long-standing plan. They already have worldwide Information Dominance, and by way monopolizing media and of the Tyranny of Small Steps, soon they will have Physical control over all populations on earth. You're already dead, unless enough of us wake up NOW and ACT…

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWRbIIaPV78&feature=emb_logo

    *************

    "Viruses" probably doesn't even exist…

    "For almost one year we have been asking authorities, politicians and medical institutes after the scientific evidence for the existence of such viruses that are said to cause disease and therefore require "immunization". After almost one year we have not received even one concrete answer which provides evidence for the existence of those "vaccination viruses".

    The conclusion is inevitable that our children are still vaccinated on the basis of scientific standards of the 18th and 19th century. In the 19th century Robert Koch demanded in his generally accepted postulates evidence of the virus in order to prove infection; at Koch´s time this evidence couldn´t be achieved directly by visualization and characterization of the viruses, because adequate technology wasn´t available at that time.

    Methods of modern medicine have profoundly changed over the past 60 years, in particular by the invention of the electron microscope.

    [OBS!!!] And still all these viruses we get immunized against have never been re-examined using this technology?"

  • Bonaparte had clearly lost his spark in the later campaigns. He would partly gain it back in the final battles to defend France, but it was too late. It is hard to see what he was trying to achieve by staying put and slugging it out on the defensive. Once the the concentration against Schwartzenberg failed, the younger Napoleon would have gone back to maneuver, looking for another day to strike the enemy off guard or in detail. God knows why he let Allies corner him like that. He should have pulled out after the 1st day.
