The Battle of Punitz took place on October 28, 1704 in Punitz (Poniec), Poland, during the Great Northern War. The Swedish Army under Charles XII unsuccessfully tried to dislodge the Saxon Army under Johann Matthias von der Schulenburg through several cavalry charges. The Saxons had deployed in a massive square formation near the village of Janitz, west of Punitz.
