'The Battle of Aspern was won because we held the field as victors. But the French were not scattered, not broken. They stood, as I saw, in lines and masses, their rear resting on the woods.' -FML Karl Freiherr von Lindenau after the fighting was concluded on 22 May 1809.

Whatever people may or may not have said (and I know nothing about the battle, nor particularly care) it does appear to be recorded as as Austrian victory...
