From Deutsche Welle.
The Napoleonic Battle of Leipzig, aka the Battle of Nations, was fought again 200 years after the first go-round. It was the bloodiest battle prior to WWI, with almost one-sixth of those fighting being killed.
Although this battle is over, mark your calendar for June, 2015 when the battle of Waterloo is going to be restaged. (As with other reenactments, of course, the same side will lose). The frustrating news for me is that this big anniversary comes just a few months before the first matches of the Rugby World Cup in the UK. I’m not sure how to do both “on the cheap”. Foof.
