Prelude to Leuthen - The Clash at Borne - The first thing Frederick ran into on his approach march to Leuthen was a covering force near Borne. They had orders to withdraw if the pressure got too intense, but in the event, they were unable to disengage cleanly and were driven off by the Prussian Hussars in considerable disarray. With Borne cleared, Frederick was free to scout the Austrian positions and decide on his next move.
