The Battle of Val 1747
of a Letter from an English Officer prisoner
Several French officers assure me, that the amount of their kill'd wounded and prisoners is full 15,000. If the left wing of our army had been supported, the battle would have become general, and we should certainly have got a compleat victory. This was prevented by the cowardice and bad behaviour of the Dutch, who turn'd their backs, and in their flight put two brigades into disorder; on which the Welsh fuzileers fired two platoons upon the Dutch.
