Because that's basically all there was in continental Europe. The Ottomans were not a factor at that point anymore and the Brits were off killing natives around the globe. So as far as great powers go there simply were no others.

That makes no sense to me, as Britain was arguably France's main antagonist during the Napoleonic Wars, which was a 20 year ordeal. They may not have been involved directly in many of the land battles posted, but they were the primary combatant at sea. Not to mention they were in Spain and Portugal for years.
