Battle of Waterloo
Waterloo, can, with some justification, lay claim to being the single most significant day’s fight in European history. Other battles were longer, fought over larger areas or by more combatants, but none can be said to have settled a war in a single afternoon, and to have produced by their result the peace that characterised the continent for so long after 1815.
