  • La battaglia di Stresow venne combattuta il 16 novembre 1715 nell'ambito dei più vasti eventi della grande guerra del Nord: un'armata di truppe prussiane, sassoni e danesi guidata da Leopoldo I di Anhalt-Dessau prese terra sull'isola tedesca di Rügen, all'epoca un possedimento della Svezia, venendo affrontata da una forza svedese guidata dallo stesso re Carlo XII; i coalizzati furono in grado di resistere agli assalti svedesi fino a indurli a ritirarsi, assicurandosi il controllo dell'intera isola.

The Swedes managed to get past the "Cheval de frise" and break through, but was then rapidly repulsed and routed after taking heavy casualties. The battle had lasted for almost an hour, and Charles whom got his horse shot dead under him during the fight, later said: "Is there no god beside me?". The attack was supposed to work like a needle-maneuver "concentrate the full attack at one point, break through and then destroy the defences from the inside" used by the Swedes fifteen years earlier in the battle of Narva, where they were greatly successful and victorious. About five hundred Swedes were either dead or wounded along with all their artillery captured. The allied casualties were: 43 dead and 121 wounded Danes 36 Saxons and 49 Prussians dead or wounded. This was however, probably the first notable Swedish field-battle defeat led directly by Charles XII. With the landing secured the alliance continued fighting of the last remaining Swedes on the island of Rügen and later joined up with the troops laying siege to Stralsund. (en)
