Count Styrum has lost track of Marshall Villars' Army. To the east of him (top of the map) several miles away at Tapfheim, his pickets are attacked by French Cavalry. He turns his army in that direction to face the expected threat. Styrum orders his baggage train assembled for departure to north to Nordlingen (left of the map) and fires three cannon shots to signal the departure of the wagons.
Marshall Villars has detached a corps under D'Usson, to attack the Imperials from the West (bottom of map) while he attacks from the east. Ironically, the signal to D'Usson that Villars is in place is to be three cannon shots.
Styrum sees D'Usson approaching from the west, and assumes the cavalry at Tapfheim is a feint, and turns his entire army to attack what he believes is the French Advance Guard, so that he can move his train into the hill to the north (left of map)
This then is the start of the battle. There is a small detachment of French cavalry to the right - off the map - that is pursued all the wy to Hochstedt by much of Styrum's cavalry.
