Sorry, all! I forgot my annual day of mourning for Fred the Barely Adequate while remembering Waterloo, June 18, 1815.

His first clear-cut defeat.

Frederick II was a lot more than 'Barely Adequate' in the view of both his friends and enemies!
Marshall Daun was a lot better than most Hapsburg generals – though he was cautious. It was a great victory for Marie Teresa, but the war was won by Prussia surviving and retaining Silesia.

no Prussia kept Silesia but was fought to a halt
