Chateau Thiery

12 February, 1814

With Field Marshal Blucher's army reeling following defeats at Brienne, La Rothiere, Champaubert and Montmirail, Napoleon Bonaparte moved to deal him another blow at Chateau Thierry.

Catching the rearguard of General Johan Yorck on the River Marne, a French attack led by Marshal Ney smashed through the defenders and, but for some well positioned Allied artillery, would have done a great deal more damage than the 3000 casualties they caused.

Bonaparte's army suffered only 600 killed and injured.
