Featured battle : Luxemborg
Part of The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars
Date : 09 August 1794 - 07 June 1795
In spite of the length of the siege the casualties on the French side were very slight. The Austrians suffered about 1,200 killed, wounded or diseased; the remainder went free on condition they would not fight again unless exchanged.

The view north towards the Royalist position from 'Cromwells Plump', the highest point on the ridge where the Parliamentarian forces formed before the Battle of Marston Moor. The Royalist line formed in front of the tree line just below the horizon. The monument to the battle can be seen, mid picture standing by the road from Tockwith to Long Marston.
