The Battle of Minden—or Tho(r)nhausen—was fought on 1 August 1759, during the Seven Years’ War. An army fielded by the Anglo-German alliance commanded by Field Marshal Ferdinand, Duke of Brunswick, defeated a French army commanded by Marshal of France Louis, Marquis de Contades. In Britain, the victory was considered one of several fortuitous events that constituted the Annus Mirabilis of 1759.
