1815 - Waterloo - Exit Napoleon

18 June is not only my birthday, but it's also the day when the Battle of Waterloo took place, now 200 years ago.

In this commemoration year of Waterloo, I want to mention again the excellent cartoon (caricature) book  The Napoleontic Wars in Cartoons by Mark Bryant.(Grub Street London, 2009, 160 pages).

One cartoon below was published just 200 years ago.

If you like some other Napoleon cartoons, you can read the article I wrote on this blog in July 2010: "Waterloo, Napoleon, a bike and cartoon books"...

Below some pics I took a few years a ago during a cycle ride ...
