Battle of Torgau, 3 November 1760 (Germany)
Battle in the Seven Years War that saw Frederick the Great of Prussia, with an army of 44,000 men defeat an Austrian army of 65,000 led by Marshal von Daun. The Prussians took 13,000 casualties, and although the battle ended a run of defeats, it did not alter the balance of the war, then turned very much against Prussia by simple weight of numbers.
