A place called Woerth


Today I worked the hours of my client in the US, so I only started work at 13:00. This morning as it was a mild and sunny day, I went for a walk near the town of Woerth. I took the above photograph looking down on the town from the site of the battlefield of 6 August 1870 between the Prussian and French armies. On this day, 90,000 Prussian soldiers (led by the future Kaiser Wilhelm II) inflicted a heavy defeat on 38,000 French forces. In the town there is a museum dedicated just to this battle, sometimes referred to as the Battle of Reichshoffen.
