The Battle of Mollwitz was fought by Prussia and Austria on 10 April 1741, during the First Silesian War (in the early stages of the War of the Austrian Succession). It was the first battle of the new Prussian King Frederick II, in which both sides made numerous military blunders but the Prussian Army still managed to attain victory. This battle cemented Frederick's authority over the newly conquered territory of Silesia and gave him valuable military experience.
Nigel reports from the front lines
The battle went the way as it seems to do; the weaker Prussian cavalry held on just long enough to hold the better quality and more numerous Austrian cavalry at bay whilst the Prussian infantry advanced and shot the Austrian infantry to pieces."
