The Battle of Zusmarshausen was fought on May 7, 1648 between the Holy Roman Empire and Sweden and France (led by Henri de la Tour d'Auvergne, Vicomte de Turenne and Louis II de Bourbon, Prince de Condé) in the modern Augsburg district of Bavaria, Germany. The Swedish-French force was victorious, and the Imperial army barely escaped annihilation.
The French army, led by Condé, first captured several pieces of artillery, before they met up with the Swedish army. When the armies met, they numbered over the 30,000 men, while the Empire only had 18,000 men.
This battle was one of the last fought in the Thirty Years' War; its consequences were the weakening of the Habsburg Monarchy and the Holy Roman Empire and signalled the rise of France as the most powerful state of Europe.
