  • Accepted History

    What are members views on the different ways each nation records its history, specifically regarding the Napoleonic war?

    As an example take Cambronne, his reported comments and the events that followed immediately after as the battle of Waterloo ended. Over the decades i've studied the battle i've seen many versions of what happened, and as you deal with the greater events of the day the variations multiply.

    Is it fair to say that given the 'passion' battles such as Waterloo creates and especially in historians, will there never be one generally accepted history of this and similar actions or events?
