206 years ago today, over 5,000 Prussian soldiers surrender to 800 French soldiers

Cripes, how downtrodden do you have to be to surrender to Frenchies? :P
But in all seriousness, that's pretty mind-blowing, but not at all surprising, given the circumstances. I mean, the Prussians had just suffered a tremendous defeat at the Battle of Jena-Auerstedt and what was left of their army was being hunted down and taken out. Damn, though, 5,300 surrender to 800? Even the peasants from Warcraft II were that defeated.
