The Battle of Beaune-la-Rolande on 28 November 1870 was a battle of the Franco-Prussian War, won by Prussia. In an attempt to relieve the Siege of Paris, French General Crouzat's XX Corps launched an attack against three Prussian brigades resting in Beaune-la-Rolande. These brigades were from the Prussian X Corps which was detailed to guard the flanks and rear of the force besieging Paris and provide early warning of any French counter-attacks. The French committed a force of 60,000 men, largely conscripts of the Garde Mobile, and 140 guns against the Prussians 9,000 men and 70 guns, mostly drawn from regular troops. Despite the overwhelming superiority of numbers the French attack failed to take the village and was ultimately forced to retreat by Prussian reinforcements.

  • La battaglia di Beaune-la-Rolande del 28 novembre 1870 fu una battaglia della guerra franco-prussiana vinta dal Regno di Prussia. Per alleviare la pressione sui parigini cinti d'assedio dal 19 settembre, il generale francese Jean-Constant Crouzat lanciò un attacco con il suo XX corpo d'armata contro tre brigate del X corpo d'armata prussiano (il cui compito era appunto quello di vigilare su possibili contrattacchi francesi) stanziate vicino a Beaune-la-Rolande. I francesi impiegarono circa 60.000 uomini, prevalentemente della Garde nationale mobile, e 140 cannoni a cui i loro nemici contrapposero 9.000 uomini e 70 cannoni. Nonostante la netta superiorità numerica, l'attacco francese fu fermato ed infine respinto dai rinforzi prussiani. Lo scontrò dimostrò la debolezza di un esercito formato da coscritti regolari, raffazzonato e privo di una rigorosa organizzazione. Nella battaglia perse la vita il pittore francese Jean-Frédéric Bazille e rimase ferito l'ingegnere tedesco Alexander Siemens, premiato inoltre con la Croce di Ferro per il coraggio dimostrato in azione.

Despite the overwhelming superiority of numbers the French attack failed to take the village and was ultimately forced to retreat by Prussian reinforcements. Prussian losses amounted to 817 soldiers and 37 officers with the French losing around 8,000 men and 100 taken prisoner. The French XX Corps changed its plan of attack, bypassing the village, but was unsuccessful at relieving the siege of Paris, which surrendered on 28 January 1871 and ended the war. The battle is notable for demonstrating the fragility of a conscript army when faced with seasoned, regular troops even when numerically superior and for the involvement of impressionist painter Frédéric Bazille and electrical engineer Alexander Siemens.
