Napoleon: "I made one mistake in my life; I should of burned Berlin."
Duke of Wellington: "Next to a battle lost, the saddest thing is a battle won."
I wish there were more movies like this. Where epic, large scale battles were captured without the help of CGI (granted CGI wasn't around at the time but still), giving an epic sense and scale to popular battles throughout history. Despite some of the historical innacuracies, this movie is perfect to me. In fact it's beautiful. It was this film that sparked my passion to study the Napoleonic Wars, specifically Napoleon's Grand Army, which I think was the best army in French history, and one of the most legendary in all of history. If only Napoleon had attacked an hour earlier, or kept a tighter leash on Marshal Ney, then history would of been a hell of a lot more different.
