|The Obensberg viewed from the French approach. Chevert would march through the gap on the far right and attack the mountain from the rear.|
A few of us were discussing the Battle of Hastenbeck in 1757. So I dug out some of my old photos that I took in 1994, after the conclusion of the Christopher Duffy Tour of Fredrician battlefields.
|A closer view of the Hanoverian left flank. Again we can see the gap in the hills through which Chevert marched.|
|Here is a view of the backside of the Obensberg. Chevert attacked the Hanoverian left-rear from here. The ascent does not look as difficult from this side of the mountain.|
|A closer view of where Chevert launched his attack into the Hanoverian left rear.|
|Hastenbeck town. The Obensberg is visible in the background.|
|Walking up a farm road from Hastenbeck towards the Hanoverian center.|
|The ascent in the center gets steeper.|
|A view of the top of the ridge after the ascent. Mike Becker is seen atop the hill for perspective.|
|Looking back towards the town of Hastenbeck. You can see the Hanoverian right flank off in the distance on the right near where the thicker group of trees are.|
|The only monument on the battlefield.|
Here are a few pictures that I took at the battlefield of Hastenbeck in Germany, circa 1994.
