Yep - but then, as always, Hybris struck.
It wasn’t just the Russian Campaing, although that was a quite spectacular end.
Before that, Napoleon’s armies were well and truly trounced in the Iberian Peninsula by none other than Wellington, who got the measure of his beloved Marshals there.
Thats how and why Wellington was able, in the end (and with a little help from the Prussians under Bluecher) to defeat him once and for all.

I was under the impression that Wellington pursued a harrassment campaign against Napoleon’s armies in Iberia - and never went toe-to-toe in a pitched battle - though still to great effect?
