The battle for Plancenoit 1815

As the intense Battle of Waterloo raged on, a glimmer of hope appeared in the distance for the Allied forces. The Prussian army began to emerge from the Bois de Paris, heading towards the village of Plancenoit.

Napoleon realized that his right flank was in grave danger, and made a swift decision to defend Plancenoit and buy himself some much-needed time for his final assault on Wellington's center.

To ensure that Plancenoit remained out of enemy hands, Napoleon sent in the Imperial Young Guard to support the line regiments. Their task was to prevent the Prussians from seizing control of the village and posing a threat to Napoleon's vulnerable right flank.

In a display of fierce determination, the Prussians managed to capture Plancenoit, prompting Napoleon to take immediate action.
