The Battle of Rheinberg took place on 12 June 1758 in Rheinberg, Germany during the Seven Years War. A French force under the command of Comte de Clermont and an Anglo-German force under the command of the Duke of Brunswick fought a largely indecisive battle. It was a precursor to the more decisive Battle of Krefeld nine days later.[1]
