On a cold and foggy morning in November 1632 Gustavus Adolphus pushed his men to march hastily towards the imperial enemy lines. He knew that time was of the essence - imperial reinforcements were on their way and he needed to attack before their arrival. This cold and foggy morning marked the beginning of a battle that was going to become one of the most gruesome encounters of the Thirty Years’ War and a fatal moment in Gustavus’ career. Some military historians see the battle of Lützen as the starting point of a new tactical regime in Europe which heralded the growing deployment of musketeers in an increasingly linear fashion. Others disregard these tactical changes as insignificant in the grand scheme of things. This video will briefly situate the battle of Lützen in the war year of 1632 and analyze the combat action hour by hour with an emphasis on individual tactical units. This is how contemporary historiography recounts the battle of Breitenfeld.
