Description

Winter-quarters of the Franco-Spanish Army of Piedmont on 18 January 1704.

N.B.: exceptionally we have associated this order of battal dating of 1704 to the campaign of 1703. Indeed, the defection of the Duchy of Savoy and the arrival of an Imperialist army in Piedmont had forced Vendôme to continue the campaign till the end of January 1704.

Commander-in-Chief: Louis-Joseph Duc de Vendôme
