The Battle of Corbach - During the French summer offensive, Marshal Broglie had chosen to unite his force with one under the command of Saint-Germain near Corbach. Ferdinand, determined to prevent this, attempted to attack Broglie before that junction could be made. The Hereditary Prince of Brunswick had a forward position on the heights above Corbach. However, Ferdinand was too slow, and a portion of Saint-Germain's force had already joined Broglie. Seeing how small Brunswick's force was, Broglie attacked, driving the Allied force off.
