One Battle of Many

One Battle of Many

Prince Eugene of Savoy was relentless.  

Prince Eugene of Savoy, who was not as handsome as his paintings would like us to believe.

With few exceptions he swept through the Balkans and set the Ottoman Empire, formerly the terrifying ascendent power galloping relentlessly through Europe, back on its heels.  

And so it was on 5 August 1716 when the Prince, with significantly fewer forces than those of the Ottoman Grand Vizier, managed to decimate the army terrorizing the Balkans.  By the end of the Battle of Petrovaradin, the Ottomans would lose 100,000 troops and their dominance of a large area of the Balkans.

And Prince Eugene of Savoy, once derided by the King of France for his effete and dissolute manners, would become the undisputed master of military command in Europe.
