On the bleak morning of September 17, 1631, two mighty armies faced each other on the field of Breitenfeld, an obscure Saxon village not far from Leipzig, whose name translated means big field. The meeting was somewhat random, but the two armies were waging war for several months in the region.
Tilly accepted battle with 32,000 men, mostly experienced veterans and a second in command, Pappenheim, known and famous for his courage and audacity. King Gustavus Adolphus II of Sweden and his 23,000-strong army plus the Protestant Elector of Saxony with 18,000 men lined up against him.
