A high oblique view of the Battle of Tuttlingen, fought on 24 November 1643 between the Imperial army, commanded by Baron Franz von Mercy (d.1645) and the French, commanded by Josias von Rantzau (18 October 1609-14 September 1650), resulting in an Imperial victory. Thirty Years War (1618-1648). Oriented with north-west to top.

The 'Graffen von Hatzfeldt' mentioned in the title of this print was Melchior, count von Gleichen und Hatzfeldt (20 October 1593-9 January 1658) who was subordinate to Franz von Mercy. The second in command of the Imperial army was Johann von Werth (1591-16 January 1652).

A very similar print, but a different engraving, appears in Merian's Theatrum Europaeum vol.5, Frankfurt am Main (1651), following p.182.
