Poul-Fétan 1815

We are at the start of the month of July 1815. The Battle of Waterloo has been a disaster for the French army and Napoleon has barely just abdicated once more. However, this isn't quite the end of the Napoleonic regime and, whilst royalists are celebrating, imperial soldiers stationed in Brittany haven't yet been ordered to stand down...

A platoon of infantry has marched from Napoléonville to the district of Quistinic, some 27km to the south. This district is made up of a number of small villages and hamlets of which one of them, Poul-Fétan, is their target.

A new day rises over the village of Poul-Fétan.

Not far from the village, imperial soldiers are arousing from their bivouac...

...and sets out to take the village.

Progress is difficult...

...and the soldiers march into a royalist ambush.

The counter-attack is immediate...

...and the village is taken.

Some time after, the fall of the Napoleonic regime signals the end of hostilities...

...and peace descends once more over Brittany.
