I just happened to encounter the following video that covers the Napoleonic Wars - the southern war in Spain/Portugal and the Northern or Eastern War in Russia, then Germany, and finally back in France.

What a stupid and terrible waste!

I recently learned that a 4th great grandfather served during the first Battle of Copenhagen (1801) on a British warship. He was part of the crew who took the Holsteen (Holstein) back to England. I'm still trying to work out the details.
