This is an original 1896 black and white halftone print of Prussian cavalry counter attacking a failed French assault during the battle of Gro§eeren. After a 7 week truce in the War of the Sixth Coalition, Napoleon launched an attack against the Prussian capital of Berlin, hoping to force Prussia out of the war. His attack was bogged down by heavy rain, swampy terrain, and poor officers.
