In October 1813 Napoleon faced the combined might of the Sixth Coalition (Russia, Austria, Prussia, Sweden) near Leipzig, in what would prove to be the decisive battle of his career. Outnumbered, virtually encircled, Napoleon opted for a high-risk strategy of striking against Scwarzenberg’s Army of Bohemia, before the other Coalition armies could come to his aid. The four-day Battle of Leipzig would be the largest and bloodiest battle in European history before the First World War, and one that changed the destiny of Europe.

I hope you enjoy the latest video in our Napoleonic Wars series! As far as I'm aware, this is now the most detailed coverage of the Battle of Leipzig in an English-language documentary. It's a very neglected battle, particularly among English-speakers, but deserves to be much better known and understood. Not only was it fought on a vast scale, but this is where Napoleon's empire suffered its mortal blow.

Please check out our sponsor The Great Courses Plus, as one way to support the channel, or our merch shop or Patreon page. See the video description for recommended books and track listings.

For those interested in details: for the battle, I've used a VERY rough scale of 1 big block (of 4 smaller blocks) = 1 infantry division, or roughly 5,000 troops. That means a small block is roughly half a brigade / 2-3 battalions, or 1,250 troops. For artillery, roughly 1 cannon icon = 50 guns (in reality, of course, guns were much more widely dispersed across the battlefield). For cavalry, the scale is roughly double that of infantry, so one big block = 2,500 cavalry. However cavalry operated in much smaller formations than this, so they, plus smaller units and skirmishers, should be thought of as operating in most of the gaps between units on the map. For anyone interested in detailed orders-of-battle for Leipzig, I recommend this page from The Napoleon Series: https://www.napoleon-series.org/military/battles/leipzig/c_leipzigoob6.html

I think the question ‘What if Napoleon won the battle of Leipzig’ is a far more interesting matter than the Waterloo one after watching this.

Can we get a series on the Italian campaign? The Egyptian campaign? It goes from Toulon to Austerlitz. WTF?

Can we not gloss over the fact that the prussians were commanding Russian soldiers? And they were putting them in the front line and the prussians in reserve?

Can you imagine being a peaceful farmer living you life in the fields close to Leipzig when all of a sudden a battle for the continent takes place in your front yard?

You guys put into context the battlefield and tactics so clearly, I felt as though I was there in 1813 hovering over Leipzig.

Another truly amazing job guys. These battles are always passed over. The history books go from the retreat from Moscow to the battle of Waterloo. I am truly excited to see the remarkable struggle that took place in between. Thank you Epic History Tv.
