Catherine Mary Stewart,
A very awful film..full of inaccuracies, the main glaring one being the Italian campaign..the battle scenes taken from the films Waterloo and War and Peace.. a bit off putting when you see British Horse Artillery in Italy firing on the Army of Italy. As for Junot, they did not even try..a fat actor playing Gen Junot (head in hands) Nelson's captain at the Nile was not Hardy, but Edward Berry and that Nile battle scene was taken from the Hornblower film. And Nelson guessing straight off that Bonaparte was heading for Aboukir, lord help us. Imperial Guard dress in the Italian Campaign..no.no.no.no There are many more..but whoever advised on this film was no Napoleonic historian....1/10
