The Prussian plan of battle failed because both flanking strong-points (the villages of Thiessen and Eupen) remained under the control of the Italo-Wurtemberg forces. While the first was fiercely contested and changed hands several times, the Wurtemberg Light infantrymen garrisoning Eupen, remained almost as spectators of the battle in the plain.
The poor use of the Reserves and the stubborn resistence of the Wurtembergs, achieved this victory for Bertrand
