I was on the southern battlefield. It's situated between Wachau an Güldengossa - two very small and very old villages. A historic place!
The Battle of the Nations (on 16–19 October 1813) was fought by the coalition armies of Russia, Prussia, Austria and Sweden against the French army of Napoleon Bonaparte. Napoleon's army also contained Polish and Italian troops as well as Germans from the Confederation of the Rhine. The battle involved over 600,000 soldiers, making it the largest battle in Europe prior to World War I.
Napoleon was defeated ... and the victors exiled him to Elba a Mediterranean island in Tuscany (Italy).
