Volkerschlachtdenkmal - Built over 15 years between 1898-1913 it is a memorial for the Battle of Nations where 300,000 Prussian, Swiss, Polish, Russian & apparently 30 English troops fought Napoleon's Army of 200,000. I suppose the English knew Waterloo was coming and had observers? It's supposed to be the largest monument in Europe at 91m tall using 26,500 blocks of granite. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Leipzig
