5 December 1757: During the Seven Years War, Frederick the Great defeats the superior Austrian Army at the Battle of Leuthen.
OK KIDS HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED
Frederick the Great wanted some sweet sweet Silesian ass during the SEven Years’ War after the Austrians, being total bitches, started to take it back after Frederick totally invaded the fuck out of it.
So Frederick was like “Fuck this, we gon’ take it back” so him and about 36,000 other Prussians marched head on to Leuthen, where 80,000 Austrians were hanging around. Frederick didn’t care about the numbers because he was called Frederick the GREAT, not Frederick the COWARD
So he met up with them and the Austrians were ready. Like bring it on, motherfucker. They already knew his tactics at this point and they were PREPARED. So they saw the Prussians coming and they made an attack, and the Austrians attacked back.
Then the Prussians retreated. The Austrians were like, “lol bye bitch” thinking damn, what an easy fucking battle, we got this shit.
And then, just when the Austrians had finished poppin’ their collars and drinking some PBR or whatever, fucking Frederick’s REAL army stormed in their on the OTHER SIDE and just totally obliterated.
The type of maneuver he did hadn’t been used since the fucking SPARTANS pulled that shit for crying out loud, and they won the goddamn battle. It cemented their place in Silsesia since the Austrians had to fall back to Bohemia. It’s regarded as one of Frederick’s greatest victories and also viewed the superiority of Prussian infantry.
