Awesome: Waterloo

  • "If you want to shoot your Emperor, well, here I am." Napoleon faces down an entire French army sent to apprehend him, and they join him instead, without a shot being fired.
  • The last soldiers of Napoleon's Old Guard are faced with two choices: surrender, or die attempting to protect Napoleon's retreat from the battlefield. When called upon to surrender there's a moment of silence, and Cambronne then shouts his famous word, which he may or may not have said.
    MERDE!
