VaeVictis #156 : warburg 1760

July 1760. The Coalition army commanded by Ferdinand of Brunswick falls back in the face of the French army, commanded by Broglie. To cut off the retreat of the Coalition, the Chevalier du Muy is sent north across the Diemel toward Warburg. Meanwhile, the German troops cross farther east at Liebenau. Du Muy deploys his army alongside the Diemel with its back to the river. Thanks to a turning movement masked by light troops of the British Legion and the mist of the morning, the troops commanded by the Hereditary Prince and Spörcken position themselves on the French left flank. At 13.00 this 31 July, the British and Hanoverian grenadiers appear at the rear of the French line, the Bourbonnais brigade counter-attacks, marking the beginning of a ferocious battle…
