    "BATTLE"?? - where was there a battle? it was a self-inflicted CHAOS - that disrupted the marching army column for some hours. About 10% of the Austrian force (mostly baggage train personal and horse-servants) used the chance to desert - due to a PANIC.

    If some hundred soldiers, randomly without any orders given - fire of their rifles at night towards unknown targets - does that constitute as a BATTLE? or a BATTLE BLUNDER??

    No Gentlemen - the following is a Battle Blunder - that outweighs the Chaos at Karensebes at any time - and indeed constitutes as a BATTLE BLUNDER.


    Battle BLUNDER of Fort Detroit

    Facing what he believed to be superior forces thanks to his enemy's cunning stratagems such as instructing the Native American warriors to make as much noise as possible around the fort, Hull surrendered Fort Detroit to Sir Isaac Brock on August 16, 1812.



    Results:

    England: - 2 wounded

    USA: - 7 killed, 2493 taken prisoner and the loss of Fort Detroit, 30 cannons, the city of Detroit and the territory of Michigan.

    Surrendering towards an inferior enemy - without putting up a fight due to the enemy MAKING NOISE.

        Battle of Karansebes all the way. It wasn't really a battle, more of mass hysteria.
