 ”There will be some stupid mistakes.” -Frederick the Great, his opinion of his Austrian counterpart, Prince Charles Alexander 
June 4, 1745- Frederick the Great wins one of his greatest victories, and his epithet, at the Battle of Hohenfriedberg. Frederick took the Austrians and Saxons by surprise and the charge of his Bayreuth Dragoons carried the day. The dragoons inflicted thousands of casualties, took thousands more prisoner, and only suffered 94 casualties. The battle proved the military genius of Frederick, the first of many astounding victories. The song, Der Hohenfriedberger, was composed in honor of the battle, supposedly by Frederick himself.
