A historic confrontation
Beaux, Ballrooms, and Battles is a celebration of the bicentenary of the showdown between Wellington's "Infamous Army" and Napoleon's Grande Armée. Wellington's Allied Army consisted of a hastily organized mélange of inexperienced men from several countries who didn't even speak the same language.
While life in Regency England continued much as it had been, the war with Napoleon was a constant source of preoccupation as young men who eagerly set off to become heroes in battle sometimes returned with life-changing injuries or worse, didn't return at all.
