According to Bernard Cornwell, the British were eagerly and anxiously waiting to learn what new tactic Napoleon would use to attack the previously undefeated British lines. In the war to that point, the British line had always beaten the French column. But Napoleon didn't do anything differently. He still sent his columns against the lines, and as they had always done, the lines won. That was one of Napoleon's failures. He was beaten fair and square!
