The battle of Waterloo is mentioned, "at which Fabrizio fights for Napoleon". Well, while the Waterloo sequence (chapters 1 to 5) is an important episode, one can't say that Fabrizio fights. What he really does is wandering aimlessly across the battlefield, watching what is happening but misunderstanding most of what he sees. He's had no military training, so he is totally unable to take part in the fight. That sentence should be edited out or corrected.--126.96.36.199 (talk) 12:53, 6 January 2008 (UTC)
He does shoot down an enemy cavalryman (who is charging against him...) at some point. (He can shoot because he has had experience hunting.)
