Map of Landen

The battle of Landen in some books is referred to as Neerwinden. The map shows the long line of entrenchments between Neerwinden and Neerlanden. The village of Laer where the Buffs made their stand can be seen to the west of Neerwinden. William's position was compromised by the River Geete (or Gheet) which hampered the line of retreat.
