After seeing the film Waterloo, are Northwest European men a lot more effeminate and less masculine now compared to the days of Napoleon? Maybe the Napoleonic Wars, WW1 and WW2 killed off the masculine men, particular in Germany, and so it is only the metrosexuals and the softer men that were spared by the wars and reproduced, thus producing less masculine men?

No. conscription was not about masculinity. Anyone standing up to refuse had to be tougher than those who submitted.
