Battle of Blenheim 13.8.1704

The Battle of HΓΆchstΓ€dt, better known in the English-speaking world as the Battle of Blenheim, is one of the most important battles of the War of the Spanish Succession. It took place on 13 August 1704, after the forces of the Franco-Bavarian alliance had, through their hesitation, missed both the opportunity to invade the hereditary lands of the Austrian Habsburgs and the chance to crush the various fighting formations of the anti-French coalition, allowing their enemies to unite. The battle ended in a crushing defeat for the French and the control of Bavaria by the anti-French coalition.
