Waterloo by Sergei B.

Recently transmitted in HD on UK TV. Beat the DVD hands down. We will never get a BluRay version I fear, so I am glad I saved it!

Depends on your definition of "Napoleonic Combat"? "Master & Commander" is virtually faultless the definitive portrayal of life at sea in the Napoleonic Wars. "Waterloo" looks great if you don't look too closely and hasn't been bettered so far.

As I said in the poll.

The Alamo (2004)it shows Napoleonic combat better than any other movie.
