The Battle of Dirschau also known as Battle of Tczew took place in the summer of 17—18 August and was one of the battles of the Polish—Swedish War — Gustavus Adolphus was wounded in the battle, which ended inconclusively. Fighting in Prussia ended in a stalemate for that year, and would not resume until Koniecpolski needed to reduce the Swedes' strength, as their current numerical superiority made it difficult for his army to contain them; Gustav II Adolf meanwhile heard rumors of possible reinforcements for Koniecpolski arriving, and wanted to defeat him before his numerical superiority withered.

The Polish army numbered 7,, including 2, hussars and reiters , 2, Cossack light cavalry, 3, infantry including 2, German mercenaries , and artillery personnel. Before the main battle, when Gustavus Adolphus was scouting the battlefield, he was ambushed by a Polish unit which chased him back to his camp. Thus Gustav II Adolf prepared a major assault for the following day. On the morning of 8 August the Swedes begun shelling the Polish positions and their artillery advantage resulted in a steady retreat of the Polish forces from their advance positions near the village of Rokitki Rokittken.

Eventually the Polish army was back in its main camp, and under artillery fire. He was targeted by infantry marksmen, who managed to wound him in the neck and arm, dropping him from the horse.

From a strategic point of view the battle ended with a Polish victory, as the Poles prevented the Swedes from achieving his aim, and stopped the Swedes from taking more aggressive actions by taking advantage of their numerical superiority. The wound Gustavus Adolphus received would put him in bed until autumn, and his right arm was weakened with some fingers partially paralyzed.

In the battle Gustavus Adolphus tested a new tactic, making their cavalry more aggressive, and charging into melee combat. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article relies largely or entirely on a single source. Relevant discussion may be found on the talk page.
