Example of battle with center and one wing reinforced: battle of Wagram, July 6, 1809. The army of Napoleon amounted to 150,000 combatants, that of the Archduke Charles to 120,000. On the nights of the 4th and 5th of July the French crossed the Danube, and took on the 5th the position F F ; on the 6th they advanced in the position F‘ F‘ F‘. In consequence of this, the Austrians proceeded to the attack by taking the position A A. Their right wing, consisting of 50,000 men, advanced to the attack of Napoleon's left wing, which he had refused; this consisted of one division, commanded by General Boudet. This left for the Austrian center and left wing but 70,000 men, against which Napoleon had concentrated nearly twice that number. The length of his front for center and left wing was about 11,000 yards, the accumulation of forces amounting, therefore, to from 11 to 12 men for every yard. Massenas's corps, with Bernadotte's, is opposite to Aderklaa. Oudinot's corps, with Lan<

In the mean time, Napoleon had defeated the Prussians, and forced them ten a position there, where he was followed by Napoleon, on the 17th of June. It was too late, on thranged as shown in the plan. The object of Napoleon, in this battle, was to destroy the English as corps is not sufficient to keep them back. Napoleon is obliged to send his 6th army corps in this armies was as follows:-- Up to this hour, Napoleon had only engaged his 1st and 2d army corps; tavalry is forced to retreat to its own lines; Napoleon sends to its assistance the cavalry of Kellerlish line; but again, at the decisive moment, Napoleon is obliged to send in another direction the t[18 more...]
ing now the passage of his troops too dangerous to be undertaken, gave up his plan. In 1809, Napoleon crossed the Danube from the Isle of Lobau; when a part of his army only had passed, the Austriaerent, likewise. We may retreat after a lost battle, as did Jordan, for instance, in 1796, and Napoleon in 1813, when driven back from the Bohemian frontiers across the Rhine; or before a very superior enemy, as the Russians did in 1812 before Napoleon; or in consequence of a preconcerted strategical plan, as in the campaign of the Archduke Charles in 1796; or, in consequence of strategical movemMoreau in 1796 was such. We may also retreat to gain a favorable position for a battle, as did Napoleon before the battle of Austerlitz; and, finally, to approach nearer our depots and magazines, if the retreat at the passage of a river or at any place it chooses to do so. At the retreat of Napoleon in the Russian campaign, the Russian army marched parallel with him on his flank; it arrived be

Each of the corps designated in the plan sustained by the others nearest to it. Examples: march and Manoeuvres of Napoleon near Jena, 1806. the operations near Jena were the following:-- The Prusoleon's army was near Bamberg, and amounted to from 170,000 to 180,000 men. Napoleon determined to cut the Prussians entirely from their base of operation. For thnoeuvres was the total loss of the Prussian army. March and manoeuvre of Napoleon near Ulm, 1805. The Austrian general, Mack, with from 70,000 to 80,000 men,pported, in less than three hours, by two or three Marches and Manoeuvres of Napoleon at Jena. 13, 14 October, 1806. other corps; and, besides, the direction is ady, the works of General Jomini, Ternay, Frederick II., Archduke Charles, Loyd, Clausewitz, the Memoirs of Napoleon, Marshal Marmont, etc. etc. should be consulted.
