2. Am Anfange des Treffens wurden einige Vortheile von der Reiterei des Prinzen von Anhalt erfochten; aber die Uebermacht des Feindes vernichtete ste bald.

3. Unwiderstehlich drangen die Bayern und Wallonen vor, und die ungarische Reiterei war die erste, welche den Rücken wandte.

4. Das böhmische Fußvolk folgte bald ihrem Beispiele, und in der allgemeinen Flucht wurden endlich auch die Deutschen mit fortgerissen.

5. Zehn Kanonen, welche die ganze Artillerie Friedrichs außmachten, fielen in Feindeshände.
