Belvedere Palace

Prince Windischgrätz marked the retreat route of the Ottoman Army on the map, and then a whole group of people from the Austrian Government just stared at the map, dumbfounded.

Yes, they were dumbfounded, and shocked at that. Anyone who understood the details would be surprised by the current actions of the Ottoman Empire.

Even if only a small number of troops were left behind to organize a militia using the terrain advantage, they could slow down the advance of the Austrian army.
