The Battle of Wagram (1897)

Henri-Georges-Jacques Chartier: The Battle of Wagram

The Battle of Wagram took place in July 1809. It was a decisive victory for Napoleon's forces over an Austrian army. The two-day battle was particularly bloody, mainly due to the use of 1,000 artillery pieces on a flat battlefield packed with some 300,000 men. [Wikipedia]
