The Cavalry That Broke Napoleon : The King's Dragoon Guards at Waterloo
On 18 June 1815, Napoleon and Wellington took to the fields of Waterloo for one final, decisive battle - a battle that would put an end to over two decades of warfare and determine the fate of Europe. Yet, little is known about the significant contribution made by the 1st or King's Dragoon Guards who, ultimately, helped deny Napoleon victory. As a regiment, the KDG was the greatest contributor to the charge, made by the British heavy cavalry, fielding nearly half of the Household Brigade's sabres, but it also made the biggest sacrifice.
