Favourite Battles of 18th Century,Part 2


This is arguable the most eventful century I've done so far,what with War of Spanish Succession,War of Austrian Succession,Seven Years War,American Revolution,French Revolution and subsequent Coalitions etc etc.

So,there will be 2 polls,because there are more than 40 battles.You can vote for however namy battles you want.

The option "Other" will be in the 2nd thread.

Several but favourite would be Quebec.

Camden's not on the list? Fine and brave stand against regulars by 'Militia' was vital in the victory.

From part 1 I voted for Blenheim and Malplaquet, on this one, for Quebec (1759) and other.

The other being Prestonpans in 1745.

1. Battle of the Bridge of Arcole

Bonaparte, what a heroism!

2. Battle of the Pyramids

Again Napoleon what a talent

3. Battle of Marengo

Glad you were their Desaix

4. Siege of Toulon

Even without proper command he knew how to win

5. Battle of Rivoli

What a great victory!

Not really.You have to watch this and the Part 1 poll,as one poll split in 2.

Besides,the timespane covered here is 1759-1800 AD.In these 41 years,American Revolution is undoubtedly among the most important and most exciting events.

Battle of Valmy: French citizen-soldiers defeated the most professional army of the time...Epic

Siege of Toulon: The battle itself was nothing special,but it was the first engagement of Napoleon Bonaparte,where he displayed his amazing military talent while fighting in the front line


I'm not an expert of wars fought in the American continent, so I decided to not consider them.
