Flem Hawker : I’ve studied Waterloo, read a lot about it etc and if someone with no real knowledge of the battle wanted to quickly get a rough overall view of what happened this is the channel to watch, in my opinion this short documentary is very well done & all in less than 15 minutes.

Aled Evans : How does this channel not have more subs? It definitely deserves a lot more : )

Pagan Pilgrim : Those French veterans still look pretty tough even after 40 years!

Jonathan Allison : this is probably the best documentary on any 19th century battle ive ever seen

Austen Kime : Nice and to the point, no bias, mentions the Germans in the British Ranks as well as the prussians, , focuses on where the real action takes place, not on theories or what ifs. Fantastic illustrations, good narration. 10/10 best Waterloo documentary.

Cainsgames : Coming from The Great War. Brilliandt video and very well made, you must have put a lot of work into it. I look forward to more of your videos.

Funny Farmer : It is nice to see this focus on the Prussian Army which contributed to this victory but has rarely received much appreciation.

Austerlitz 6an9ban6 : I created 200 youtube account to subscribe your channel. Great great work!

Tarik360 : I don't know how this appeared on my recommended videos on the main-page. But I'm glad it did. Insta-subbed!

Jive Turkey : Wow. Amazing. Wonderful. I had heard so much about Waterloo but I never understood what happened, until now. Thank you.

Napoleonist : Vive L'Empereur!!!

JayDee : love the pictures at the end

SirRoger : just found out about this channel. It puts history / discovery channel to shame

Brian Ring : Awesome video, those photos of the soldiers in their uniforms remind me of the reality of this and other historical battles that before I saw them just now I've only perceived through a drawing or painting

Ijitorikku : The old photos are so badass. Those are really good pictures. you can feeling the pride, valor, dignity of the old guys.

TheEuphoriac : Really well done! Great narration and animations, I really understood everything going on, and I liked the lack of bias in the video, giving credit to the Prussians, Dutch, Hanoverians, etc. I'm also looking forward to Russia pt. 2!

Yusuf Elnehdi : the old guards die, they never surrender

Mads Jensen : This didn't feel like 14 minutes :) Very nice

Noah Weaver : to bad Napoleons dream of Empire could never be done. What an influential individual though i like the other European powers. France is definately one of the more powerful even today.

Keiran Bradley : It was the Scots Guards who took Napoleons' imperial eagle standard, it's in a pub on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh.

Stannis The Mannis Baratheon : Napoleon was a good man an honourable man

bozojazzmkII : Can't wait for your one on Austerlitz. Awesome channel.

ColorWarrior : World would be must more better place if napoleon would won, think about that really. Btv i am german


bugsy101073 : Wished Napoleon won and united Europe

Troy Virgona : 30 seconds in and I knew I would have to subscribe. Top notch production, engaging, and informative. Excellent work.

Jim Hope : Frenchmen of this period are some of history's toughest fighting men.

KTChamberlain : I believe Wellington said straight after the Battle of Waterloo: "I've had this piece of land in my pocket for a very long time." Is that true, or at the very least is there truth to that?

LaDabe : Your videos are better than most of the educational videos and documentaries that schools shoe their students. School should consider using your videos during lessons. Of course, you should get paid for it. Keep up the good work!

Andrew Downer : thank you for saying Anglo-allied not british

Captain Obvious : Great video! People with zero knowledge on this part of history will be able to understand with such clear narration and animations. Thanks for the effort in creating this documentary. Btw, you are working on WW1 1916-1918 and russian part 2 right?

Mikki Carr : The Great War sent me here, this is an excellent channel! Keep up the good work!

AndyRandom : I have been wondering: how large is one 'unit' on the map actually? And how large were individual formations in the napoleonic wars?

Rock Island Auction Company : Great production value with clear information that is anything but boring. Made me a subscriber right away!

Shubhan Ravi : Please make on on the French revolution

Jay MyLotto : You ignored The Netherlands. You placed a British flag on Dutch territory. Your initial map had incorrect borders with The Netherlands. Also, there was no "Belgium" back then. This film must be a British production.

Rafael de Rezende : Have you ever thought of doing videos about how battles worked: Like what was the general role of artillery, what was infantry usually comprised of, the methods of attacking.... Would be interesting!

serjorah mormont : Nice description, although I am a bit dissappointed regarding one point: The whole discussion seems a bit too Anglo-centered. I never heard the Prince of Orange being mentioned, even though even Napoleon himself acknowledged if it were not for his vanguard tactics, he would have probably won the battle. Instead this discussion makes it seems it was all due to Wellington's leadership and strategy. But well, the winners write history they often say. And how much the British did with regard to the Prince, completely ridiculing him...

Azam Khan : not a French, but dis battle is heart-breaking

Slava Mezhdoyan : Fantastic! Awesome!

Rabbi Pepe : This France was very respectful I wish France won

Việt Dũng Nguyễn : This video is clearly the best documentary about the battle of Waterloo! Amazing works!

Florian Wittig : That was very enlightening.

Gareth Humphreys : This is incredibly well done

seth bramwell : wow this is crazy thanks so much for this information
