Plans depicting the battles and positions of the Austrian, Russian, and Hungarian armies in Hungary during the revolution of 1848/1849, near Raab (today Győr) on 28 June, Komárno on 11 July, Pered (today Tešedíkovo) on 21 July, Szőreg on 5 August, and Temesvár (today Timişoara) on 9 August 1849. Due to the revolutionary events in Europe, which spread to Hungary in 1848, and to rein in the rebel fervour and prevent the further spreading of revolutionary ideas, the government in Vienna appealed for Russian aid. In the mentioned battles, the Austrian and Russian armies decisively defeated the Hungarian army, and the revolution was completely defeated after the Hungarian forces were broken in August 1849.
