On 11 September a captured Pasha disclosed that whilst the Sultan and his artillery had crossed the river the bulk of the infantry with the Grand Vizier had not. Eugene rushed his army to the high ground above Zenta. His left wing infantry used a sandbank to get behind the Turkish defences and cut off access to the bridge. Some 20,000 Turks including the Grand Vizier were slaughtered and a further 10,000 drowned. Eugene's army lost about 300 men.
Could Sept. 11 have been selected as a sneak attack date by the WTC terrorists as a payback for the surprise defeat Islamic Turkish forces suffered at the Battle of Zenta some 400 years ago? Only an insane fanatic would know.
It's quite late for mental math --- that's some 300 years ago!!!
Austrian forces captured the Ottoman treasury, all of its artillery and provisions and 10 of the Sultans wives. After the battle the treaty of Karlowitz is signed in which the Ottomans are forced to cede Croatia, Hungary Transilvania and Sovenia to Austria. This was a very humiliating defeat to the Ottoman forces in their quest to conquer the western world.

I believe it was. They turned the date from a Islamic defeat to a Islamic victory.
