There was quite a nice documentary about the battle of Leipzig on Arte, but I didn't learn much much about the strategies that were used.
The Allied strategy at Leipzig was simple enough, just keep using their huge numerical superiority to attack on all sides and wear down the French. It pretty much worked as intended even though it wasn't elegant. As for dramatic moments what could have been more dramatic than the premature blowing of the Lindenau bridge? Leipzig deserves an epic movie in the style of The Alamo, The Longest Day, The 300 Spartans, and Waterloo. The examples are there.
Meanwhile, LC, thanks for the movie you actually did. One thing: the French should have been represented in blue on your maps; I wondered why red was chosen for them instead.
