Waterloo - League of Augsburg Weekend Part 2

The French plan was to ignore the big potential meat grinder on the left flank; Hougoumont chewed up so many battalions on the day of battle and for no discernible gain.

Instead a diversionary attack on the ridge of the Allied right would pin troops in place whilst the weightiest assaults would fall on the Allied centre and left.

Hougoumont... so tempting...
