Absolutely tiny. I just don't get it. Please replace with a real battle.
Oh, and to only choose defeats for Napoleon is so petty it's laughable :D. At least put Austerlitz not to be ridiculous.
- The Marne battle actually occured in 1914. There is a 2nd battle of the Marne in 1918 but with the Americans and Kingdom of Italy on the Allies side. The first one (1914) is more known IMHO, due to its short duration (6 days) vs the casualties and losses (+500 000, including 150 000 dead)
- Normandy landing is wrong placed. It should be a bit on the west, where the coast go north. There was actually the well known battle of the Somme at the place indicated on the map (in 1916) - where Tolkien fought btw. I tried many ways to find out and was a bit disappointed that it was not even the good answer.
Additionally Normandy landings should also accept D-Day (or Débarquement =) )
- Tours battle is more known by Poitiers battle (at least here in France - I could find the answer despite the fact I know the battle)
- Gravelines located near Dunkirk was also misleading, but fair enough
If you're still open for add ups, I'd recommend researching battles from the Paraguayan War of 1864-1870. It's the largest modern war to ever happen at South America and it envolved four of its countries (Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina and Uruguay), not to mention its worldwide comercial and diplomatic impact at the time.
In any case, congrats again for your originality and research effort. Nominated!
