Waterloo (1970 film)

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.
