The Battle of Reichenberg - When Frederick advanced into Bohemia to start the 1757 campaign the Austrians were still trying to gather their troops. The isolated corps of Count von Koenigsegg, tried to delay a force of Prussians under Bevern at Reichenberg. Bevern decided to attack, despite the fact that the Austrians slightly outnumbered him and were posted in a strong defensive position.
