For anyone with access to the BBC, there is a new series of Time Commanders on at 9pm tonight (12 Dec). There will be three episodes, two covering Roman battles and one covering Waterloo.

For those that are unaware, Time Commanders is a TV show where members of the public re-enact battles using an engine similar to that from Total War. The original series were in 2003-2005 and only covered ancient battles. So the inclusion of Waterloo is interesting.

I found these episodes to be were entertaining. Not only can you see the historical battle unfold, but military historians provide comment on the tactical and strategic/tactical situation and provide criticism of the tactics used by the participants.
