Field Marshall Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of WellingtonEdit
- Give me night, or give me Blücher.
- Next to a battle lost, there's nothing so melancholy as a battle won.
Emperor Napoleon I of FranceEdit
- I am France, and France is me!
- I've been in this position before at the Battle of Marengo. I lost the battle at five o'clock, but I won it back again at seven!
Field Marshal Gebhard von BlücherEdit
- [launching his attack on the French right] Raise high the black flags, children. No pity. No prisoners. I'll shoot any man I see with pity in him. Forward!
Marshall Michel NeyEdit
- [attempting to rally the Imperial Guard] Up to them. Up to them! Do I fight alone? Are you French? Fight with me! Are you the Guard? Stand with me! Do you know me? I am Ney! Ney, Marshall of France!
- British artillery commander: Sir, Napoleon has ventured within range. May I have your permission to try a shot?
- Wellington: [stares at him a moment] Certainly not! Leaders of armies have better things to do than fire at each other.
[after a cannon shot has landed near the Duke of Wellington and the Earl of Uxbridge]
- Uxbridge: By God sir, I've lost my leg.
- Wellington: By God sir, so you have.
