    From 1745 to 1747, during the War of Austrian Succession, Maurice de Saxe won three great victories against the Allied Army known as the "Pragmatic Army".

    On May 11, 1745, at Fontenoy, after a brilliant maneuver, he drives the British-Dutch army, commanded by Cumberland, to confront him on the terrain of his choosing. Following a furious fighting where the French army, under the eyes of the King Louis XV, struggles but does not fall, the Pragmatic army retreats, leaving behind thousands of fallen men.

    On October 11, 1746, at Rocoux, on the uplands of Liège, he defeats the allied army led by Austrian commander Charles Alexandre de Lorraine.

    Finally, on July 2 1747, at the battle of Lauffeld near Maastricht, the French army attacks and is victorious from a position diametrically opposed to that of Fontenoy. Following fierce fighting around the village of Lauffeld, the Allied Army, once again commanded by Cumberland, owes salvation to the sacrifice of the British cavalry.
