A scarce map of the Battle of Döbeln in Saxony on 12th May 1762, during the Seven Years' War, published in Raspe's 'Schau Platz des gegenwaertigen Kriegs' (Plates illustrating the Current Wars).
It was a surprise attack by the Prussians on the Austrian army commanded by General von Zettwitz. He was so confident in his defences that he only posted a large guard at night, leaving a few pickets during the day. The Prussians attacked at the moment the night guard returned to quarters and overran the Austrian camp, capturing 1,500 troops including Zettwitz.
