A detailed plan of the camp of Frederick II of Prussia's army at Bunzelwitz (now Boleslawice), outside Schweidnitz (Swidnica) in south-west Poland, nearly surrounded by the Russian and Austrian Armies. The positions of each corps is marked, with the names of the commanders. With all the armies short of supplies the Prussians withdrew, allowing the Austrians to storm and take the important fortress of Schwiednitz later in September.
