First of all I would like to extend my apologies to the redoubtable Mr. Fox for not posting this item sooner!
I cannot imagine that there is a Napoleonic, or indeed probably any wargamer that has not seen the film Waterloo - Waterloo. I can safely say that this film was very much the inspiration for my own Napoleonic adventure back in formative wargaming years and I still have a very soft spot for the film and the 1815 section of my library. I also have not forgotten my plans to refight the campaign using the block armies and (possibly) Volley and Bayonet, or even something entirely different.
I was absolutely delighted to receive from the hand of Mr.Fox a couple of weeks ago a copy of the original cinema release program dated back to 1971 and chock full of large sized double page stills (in colour) from the film itself. Given my fondness for all things 1815 related this was a delightful gift to receive and so my grateful thanks are extended to Mr Fox for bringing some cheer to what has been a very trying few weeks.
As a postscript I was surprised and tantalised at the the prospect of seeing the full length version of this great film - it was rumoured to have been in the region of some four hours long when made but was only shown in its entirety in Russia.
One can but hope this version will made available at some point in the West!
