Please help me to remember my Church history. Were not the prayers to the Blessed Virgin for her protection given a great deal of credit for the victory against the Turks?

Yes, Catholics attributed the victory to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin, and the date of the battle became the feast of the Holy Rosary.
Of course, this was before Pope Gregory's reform of the calendar, so it should be October 17 (N.S.).
