6 November, 1792

The Austrian army was in winter quarters near Jemappes, in the Austrian Netherlands (Belgium) when attacked by the French.

Outnumbered by more than three to one, the 13,000 Austrians were beaten by General Dumouriez's 45,000 Frenchmen.

Losses were 2000 suffered by the French and 1500 to the defenders.

A boost for the fledgling republic, the revolutionary forces went on to capture Brussels.
