18 May, 1794

Under the temporary leadership of General Jospeh Souham, General Pichegru's command clashed with an Austro-British-Hanoverian force at Tourcoing.

Despite a slight advantage in numbers, the 74,000 Allied troops under Saxe-Coburg were out-led and out fought by France's 70,000 troops.

French casualties were six guns and 3000 men, while their enemies suffered 5500 troops lost and some 60 pieces of artillery.
