Woerth

Woerth

 

(also Wörth), a city in Alsace, France. During the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71, a battle was fought near Woerth on Aug. 6, 1870, between MacMahon’s army group, composed of 38,000 men and 140 guns, and Prince Frederick William’s Third Army, composed of 140,000 men and 480 guns. The Germans, who attacked head-on in close forma- tion, lost more than 10,000 men; but they won owing to their numerical superiority. The French lost 4,000 in dead and wounded, and more than 9,000 were taken prisoner. Subsequently they retreated to Châlons-sur-Marne, enabling the Germans to bypass Bazaine’s army from the south near Metz.
