Bernard Coppens

Bernard Coppens, researcher, historical illustrator, and uniformologist for institutions like the National Military Museum of the Netherlands, devoted his life to the study of the period 1789-1815. He published numerous articles and books on this period including several studies on the Battle of Waterloo. The passion he devoted throughout his life to researching original documents and studying sources led him to take a different look at events and to hunt down inaccuracies and falsehoods.

Starting from the observation that history is never neutral, particularly that of the Napoleonic era (it was Buonaparte who said that "History is a series of lies on which we agree"), Bernard Coppens, all his life, was convinced of the need to rid history of the errors introduced in the 19th and 20th centuries.
