The new reason of defeat of Napoleon is found


Historians from Imperial College London have come to a conclusion that Tambor volcanic eruption in 1815 became one of the main reasons for defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte in the battle of Waterloo. It is reported in the press release on Phys.org. Tambora's eruption on the Indonesian island of Sumbawa has taken place in April, 1815 and became one of the most powerful in the history of a human civilization. Ashes have covered almost all basin of the Javanese and Flores seas, having reached the islands of Java, Kalimantan and Sulawesi, and the roar from explosions was heard across all Malay Archipelago. It is considered that eruption has led to "year without summer" in the 1816th. About hundred thousand people became the victims of accident. Scientists consider that as a result of explosion of a volcano so much ashes have been released into the atmosphere that it has influenced formation of clouds and heavy rains on all planet. Particles which diameter was 0,2 million meters thanks to electrostatic forces rose to an ionosphere where influenced climatic conditions and caused natural disasters in various regions of Earth. Extreme weather in Europe, according to researchers, became a factor of defeat of army of Napoleon. It is considered that the heavy rain in the battle of Waterloo has caused softening of the soil therefore firing by the French gunners of troops of the opponent was inefficient. Kernels didn't ricochet, and sodden soil absorbed energy from explosions. The fatigue of soldiers which has amplified because to Waterloo they had to go to rain time on wet dirt also could affect result of battle.
