The battle of the Dunes ( fr. Bataille des Dunes ), also known as the Battle of Dunkirk , took place on June 14, 1658, as part of the Franco-Spanish war (as well as the Anglo-Spanish war ). It ended with the victory of the French troops under the command of Marshal Turenne over the Spanish troops under the command of Juan of Austria and Prince Louis de Conde . “The successful actions of Turenna are amazing, and the talented use of it by all means that could secure his success surpasses everything we have encountered so far. He used the tide to have support from the fire of the English fleet, and the ebb to get around the enemy’s flank ”  .
