BATTLE SCENE (SOUNDBITE) (German) HEAD OF BATTLE OF LEIPZIG ANNIVERSARY ORGANISATION, MICHELE KOTH, SAYING: "For Germany it marked the end of Napoleon's control of German territory - this is for the German perspective, for the birth of the nations it meant it anyway, as the term nation arose from it - the Grand Nation and the German nation originates from there with all its strange developments in the following times and Europe was reorganised after Napoleon was defeated in Waterloo." MORE OF BATTLE ONGOING (SOUNDBITE) (German) HEAD OF BATTLE OF LEIPZIG ANNIVERSARY ORGANISATION, MICHELE KOTH, SAYING: "It's easy to forget, but of course if I am illustrating the military, war is a part of it. We would like to present it in a way that we show how they fought, how their movements were, but also to show people, how loud war could be. When you hear the cannon shots, you will know what I mean." MORE OF CANNON SHOTS VARIOUS OF SOLDIERS SHOOTING WOMEN IN PERIOD COSTUME SITTING AND WATCHING BATTLE PARTICIPANT JUERGEN KAUTZNER WALKING WITH ANOTHER PARTICIPANT FRENCH EMPEROR NAPOLEON BONAPARTE WITH HIS TROOPS (SOUNDBITE) (German) BATTLE PARTICIPANT JUERGEN KAUTZNER, SAYING: "There are some people, who are so agitated, you have to take them out (of the battle), they were bright red in the face and had to see the medical staff. It is a special event, you had to take them back, but most of them are excited." VARIOUS OF BATTLE SCENES SPECTATORS WATCHING EVENT YOUNG BOY WITH CAMERA (SOUNDBITE) (German) SPECTATOR RONNI DROEHME, SAYING: "I would say regardless of the event and how terrible this battle was, it wasn't easy to die and it still would hurt, also back then, but humankind never learned from it." (SOUNDBITE) (German) SPECTATOR FELIX NEUHAUS, SAYING: "I think it is good to put yourself in the place of the problems of people in the past and to see how good we have it today, when we can go into our bed every night and not have to sleep on the battle field, fearing to be attacked." (SOUNDBITE) (German) SPECTATOR RALF BUTZEK, SAYING: "They have chased Napoleon back to France and only with this the reorganisation of Europe became possible, with Napoleon it surely would have been very different."
