The battle of Zorndorf was the most bloody of the Seven Years鈥?War. It is often considered the most furious battle which was ever fought. While Frederick was engaged in this arduous campaign in the extreme north, driving the Russians from the Prussian territory, an Austrian army, ninety thousand strong, under General Daun, was endeavoring to reconquer Saxony.

He had been every where, seen every thing, and remembered all which he had either heard or seen.
