The Battle of Maxen (20 November 1759) was a battle at Maxen, Saxony in present-day Germany during the Seven Years' War. It resulted in surrender of Prussian corps.
The Prussian corps of 14,000 men, commanded by Friedrich August von Finck (one of Frederick the Great's generals), was sent to threaten lines of communication between the Austrian army at Dresden and Bohemia. Field Marshal Count Daun attacked and defeated isolated Finck's corps on 20 November 1759 with his army of 40,000 men. The next day (21 November) Finck decided to surrender.

Libušín, April 2010
Medieval encampment of various period, from early roman to late gothic, market place and great battle of all man-at-arms. No reconstruction of real battle, just big gathering of all admirers of history.
