Picture description.
Napoleon's Dream by Mark Churms.

"French domination of Europe could never be assured without Britains defeat. Had he defeated Russia, Napoleon may have been able to launch an invasion of England in 1813. Using American designed paddle steamers".

Well observed PC, I clearly see the chimney and paddle wheel.
Pity for Napoleon, but France in 1813 was not advanced enough to harness steam power in this way, though the technology was there in Britain and the US. Crossing the Channel using steamboats remains a dream.

The small Chateau of Hougoumont stood before the extreme right of the Allied position at Waterloo. Napoleon planned to draw Wellington's reserve to the Allied right flank in defence of Hougoumont and then attack through the centre left of the British and allies front near La Haye Sainte. The Duke of Wellington formed the view that the Chateau was the key to his flank and garrisoned it with the light companies of the Coldstream ( 2nd Foot Guards ) and 3rd Foot Guards ( Nassauers, Hanoverians, Brunswickers, KGL and British Guards held the woods around the Hougoumont Chateau ). Wellington had placed Lieutenant-Colonel James MacDonell of the Coldstream Guards in charge at Hougoumont, with the words "defend the post to the last extremity". This MacDonell certainly did and Hougoumont was not taken in nearly nine hours of continuous fighting.
The battle of Waterloo started with a furious attack upon Hougoumont. This first attack failed and it set a pattern for the rest of the day. The French next attacked to the west of the farm, where the open ground was held by the 3rd Foot Guards. They were overwhelmed and forced to retire through the North Gate pursued by the French. Hougoumont nearly fell when a determined attack by Sous-Lieutenant Legros - nicknamed "L'Enforceur" or "The Smasher" - wielding a huge sappers axe, managed to break through the gate ( see picture ). Despite trying to shut the gate, 30 Frenchmen forced their way through. Lieutenant-Colonel MacDonell called on three Coldstream officers to help him close the gate, they were joined by Cpl. James Graham and his brother Joseph, also a Corporal, and four men from the 3rd Foot Guards. Between them they managed to close the North Gate and secure it. All of the Frenchmen who entered, apart from a young drummer boy, were killed in a desperate hand to hand fight.
I bought this print when I was at Waterloo. It's always been my favorite for the emotion is conveys.

OT: You can still see the poc marks from musket balls in the walls of Hougoumont.

"Battle of Jena, 1806". Depicting Napoleon reviewing the French Imperial Guard at the battle of Jena.

There is one amusing story about the picture of Napoleon reviewing the Imperial Guard at Jena. The Guardman in the second row couldn't contain himself from raising his head and cheering at the emperor apparantly being told to contain himself by Napoleon

I'm a bit fed up. I found some wonderfull pics of the Spanish army under Romana in Hamburg, but my limited IT knowledge doesn't allow me to load them.

For anyone interested in prints by Knotel I recommend:

http://www.grosser-generalstab.de/tafeln/knoetel.html.

This page show prints by the artist about all Major and minor powers during the Napoleonic wars and other periods

"Battle of Borodino" - Huge panorama by Franz Roubaud ( Franz Rubo ), unveiled in 1912 and moved to Poklonnaya Hill, Moscow, in 1962.
