||The year 2015 marks 200 years since the Battle of Waterloo. Using recently uncovered historical evidence and based upon almost a decade of research, this major, three-part series, sheds new light on Napoleon as an extraordinarily gifted military commander and a charismatic leader whose private life-contrary to popular belief 200 years later-was littered with disappointments and betrayals: not least in relation to Josephine. Part 3 examines Napoleon's gradual downfall, starting with his invasion of Spain and Portugal to enforce economic sanctions against Britain and continuing with the invasion of Russia, the Battle of Borodino, and the disastrous retreat from Moscow that decimated the Grande Armée. It also includes Napoleon's abdication, temporary reinstatement, and final defeat at the Battle of Waterloo-leading to his exile on St. Helena.
