The Battle of Torgau - By late fall of 1760, the Austrians had established themselves around Torgau in Northern Saxony. Daun was entrenched in a strong position on the heights west of the city. Frederick decided to try to flank the Austrian position, marching through the woods to the west of the town, while leaving a sizable corps under Zieten to the south of the Austrian Position. Frederick was detected while on his flank march, and the Austrians turned their first line to the north, effectively forming a box on the heights. The Austrians were getting the better of the battle until Daun was wounded late in the day. At about the same time, Zieten finally attacked the Austrian positions in the south, driving the confused Austrians from the heights, giving the Prussians the victory in one of the bloodiest battles of the war.
