Short Note This is a short note

Frederick II of Prussia defeats a force of Imperial troops at the Battle of Leuthen (present-day Poland). His success is due mainly to the fact that battalions of Protestant soldiers from W├╝rttemburg were, in the event, unwilling to attack their fellow Protestant Prussians.
