rst case, the most advantageous point to act on, is the center, which we should break with our whole force, and then defeat each of the two wings separately. In 1796, Napoleon, when opposed to Beaulieu, whose line was extended from Genoa to Ceva, broke through the center of the Austrian army at Montenotte with his entire army, on between his armies, so as to fall with our whole force on the first of his corps that presents itself, and then defeat the others. At the siege of Mantua, in 1796, Napoleon, being informed that Wurmser, who had advanced from the Tyrol against him, had divided his force and was descending one bank of the Lake of Garda with his our other army, unite with it, and defeat the enemy by our superiority; we then return to the first army, the fate of which will not remain long undecided.

If we retreat in consequence of a strategical movement and are pursued by an inferior enemy, as was Moreau in 1796, we should act like him — that is, to disengage our rear by trying to engage and defeat the pursuer.
