EXT. FRENCH RIDGE - DAY

Napoleon giving orders. Ney, covered with mud and
bloodstains, has become a wild-looking creature.

NARRATOR
By 6 pm, Napoleon had entered into
the battle himself and was forced to
commit 14,000 men of his general
reserve to hold up Bulow's
Prussians.

EXT. BATTLEFIELD - DAY

The Imperial Guard infantry being blasted by a wall of
British fire, they falter and retreat. The sound of
musket balls against the French breast-plates sound like a
hail-storm beating on windows.

NARRATOR
At 7:30 pm, Napoleon released 5
battalions of the guard reserve for

Ney's final assault. When this
failed, the French morale cracked.

EXT. BATTLEFIELD - DAY

British cavalry charge.

NARRATOR
Wellington put in his cavalry, and
the French army broke in panic and
ran.

EXT. BATTLEFIELD - DAY

Ney, now a bloodspattered demon, trying to stop the
retreat.

NEY
Come on -- follow me and see how a
Marshal of France dies!

He charges into the battle.

NARRATOR
But Ney would survive the battle to
be shot for treason by the returning
monarchy.
