Sample text

With this many troops in so confined a space, disease soon broke out and the number of effective troops declined due to death, privation, and hunger. Würmser would surely capitulate unless the Austrians could raise another army to liberate him. The Austrians, with both Moreau and Jourdan defeated along the Rhine, did just that. Moving troops from the German theater and using what remained of Würmser’s army (Davidovitch and Quasdanovitch), the Hofkriegsrat formed another powerful force to drive south and relieve Mantua and end the string of French victories by the upstart Corsican general.

Initially his forces failed, but he led them in person into the fray and they crossed both the bridge and a ford downstream and took the Austrians in the front and flank. At some cost, he bloodied the Austrians, who lost three times as many men as the French as well as16 guns, but the Austrians withdrew the bulk of their force in good order, covered as always by their excellent cavalry. 37 Bonaparte’s operations in this busy first week of May highlight again his rapid style of maneuver and decision, bluffing as often as bludgeoning his enemy out of a very strong position.

The point to be made here is that when campaigns are designed to accomplish military objectives that lead to political results, this is often more difficult in a coalition construct than without it.
