casualties2=400The Battle of Amberg resulted in an Austrian victory under
Archduke Charles of Austriaagainst the French under General Jourdan.
Archduke Charles waited until the French generals had penetrated far from their base of operations, left 30,000 men under General Latour to watch Moreau, and hurried north with 27,000 to find Jourdan still pressing Wartensleben near Amberg. Charles struck the French right flank while Wartensleben attacked frontally. The French
Army of Sambre-et-Meusewas overcome by weight of numbers and Jourdan retired. Charles went on to defeat both of the French armies in southern Germany and took the last French held stronghold on the east of the Rhine in the first weeks of 1797.
