    --------------------
    In 1796, at the height of the Revolutionary Wars, Napoleon Bonaparte took command of French forces in northern Italy. He was just 26 years old and had never commanded an army before. Within weeks, he had turned his ragged, demoralised troops into a ferocious fighting force, defeating the Austrians and knocking Piedmont out of the war. With success, Napoleon began to believe it was his destiny to shape the fate of nations. In this series, we follow Napoleon's first glorious campaign step by step.

      Agreed, wurmers tactical decisions in the fight towards mantua are nothing short of heroic. However in terms of strategy wurmser made a number of serious blunders. First he devided his army like he did at previous attempt to relieve Mantua. Second operating on the false assumption that napoleon would not advance with a strong army in such numbers towards the north. Davidovich was left with to few men to defend against the full might of napoleons army. Third instead of retreating towards mantua wurmser should have marched east towards venice or triest. That way wurmser and his army could be free to be resuplied and reinforced. Fourth allowing himself to be trapped at mantua alongside the austrian garrison. All in all wurmser showed great bravery and skill but that doesn't take away that this second relief attempt was a catastrophe for the austrians.

      @The Slazzer exactly but there lies the point. Once he made those blunders and the route to escape to the east was no longer viable or availeble he had no choice but to fight. Otherwise his army would have been either destroyed or forced to surrender. Wurmsers greatest feat was that he kept the core of his army intact when he was forced to retreat into the fortress of Mantua.

      @Nope
      You missed an important word: the "sole" credit. Commanders in Leipzig and Waterloo don't have the "sole" credit (even if the British tend to forget about the existence of Blucher when it comes to Waterloo). Fact is, only Austrian commanders defeated Napoleon on their own. In the other battles he lost Napoleon faced coalitions with multiple armies and commanders.

    This portion of the campaign is not as flashy as Castiglione, but honestly, it's more impressive for that.
    The concentration for the opening was excellent. It speaks to an excellent handle on the details of the movements required. Also, it is an excellent use of the shock of the attack and knowing when you have the enemy beat.
    The decision to rip up the unrealistic plan put down by the Directory was timely and correct. The 2 day march through the Brenta valley to Bassano is just a jaw-dropping feat.
    From there, it was truly an excellent pursuit of the Austrians. The fact that Napeolon was on the cusp of catching and destroying the Austrian army after marching that far through difficult country again does him and his army immense credit. It's only really because of factors outside of Napoleon's control that he doesn't bag the whole Austrian army.
    San Giorgio is an excellent tactical concept and was executed brilliantly as well.
    This right here is Napoleon at his best.
    I think it's also important to not gloss over the Austrians in all this, and honestly, I can't censure Wurmser too much for this operation. It has all of the hallmarks of an offensive that was launched not because it was advisable but because the powers that be said their needs to be one. The decision to continue onto Mantau was the best of a lot of terribly options that Wurmser was presented with.
    Well next we are going to see what happens when Napoleon is presented with someone who is, while probably not an equal to him, able to plan a very good offensive and now Napoleon is more overstretched and exhausted than he was before Castiglione.

    Got to admired how Wurmser & his Austrian army fought courageously to hold the line against Napoleon in the latter stages of this battle at Mantau. He was almost similar Russia's Field Marshel Kutuzov, and was still highly regarded by many as one of Austria's best remaining field commanders. Even after his defeat against Napoleon, many people including Bonaparate himself respected the 72-year-old Austrian

      Wurmser was definitely a good general, his judgements in the video would probably have been correct if it was a more standard general.
      His issue was that he was an expert of standard warfare, and napoleon was fighting in a completely different way.

    I imagine Napoleon thinking: "Run Wurmser, run Austrians, I'll chase you wherever you go." This is the Napoleonic speed that will cause a lot of damage among the Coalition armies in the coming years.
    It has been an exciting and frenetic video from start to finish. I love how the Austrians plan to make a move and Napoleon not only beats them to it but he already has the right action prepared for such an eventuality. In addition, we begin to notice his independence with respect to the Directory that will end up leading him to govern France. On the battlefield one must act quickly and decisively, so his decision to pursue the Austrians instead of going to Germany not only saves the French war effort, but avoids possibly being defeated by Archduke Charles. Ironically Napoleon saves the war for France in Italy and Charles for Austria in Germany.
    The old Wurmser did not expect such attack and speed from Bonaparte, but his performance of continuing to Mantua was totally correct. It's great to see his heroic, if ineffective, actions against Napoleon.
    Massena's defeat at Cerea can easily be explained by the despair of the Austrians, who preferred to fight rather than surrender and forced their way through. And Massena's surprise attack may be because he wanted revenge for the previous defeat. That is also worth mentioning.
    And finally, after this last victorious campaign based on speed of movement, Napoleon's chances to win are greatly reduced. From now on, with barely an army in condition, exhausted, with very few reinforcements and barely 20,000 soldiers, he must use all his cunning and military genius to get ahead in the coming months.
    Once again, thanks to Epic History TV and PMF Productions for this great visual and historical work on Napoleon Bonaparte.

    Not to take away from Napoleonโ€™s achievement on this campaign, it does seem that history has been unfair to the Austrians during this period. Like their French counterparts, I imagine they were seen as a secondary front to fight the enemy. While they fought hard and bravely in many cases, they were facing a military titan in Napoleon.
    Edit: Those animations are stunning by the way.

      While its safe to assume that yes the main effort was sent to Germany (i mean Archduke Charles is there afterrall i doubt a relative of the emperor doesnt get the very best), i really doubt the Austrians would hold back as much as France in the defance of Italy, especially Mantua since if it falls Austrian influence over Italy is no more and Austria itself would be vulnerable, so while this is indeed a secondary front its not to the same extand as the French who really couldnt care less as the directory is based in Paris and the threat to the south is minimal for now

      I would say around 1809 after Wagram, Napoleon's enemies were starting to become better trained and organised after learning multiple lessons from Napoleon in terms of tactics, army organisation e.g. replicating the Grande Armรฉe's Corps system and Berthier's General staff system. That not to say the Coalition had things easy as shown with Napoleon's six day campaign of 1814, but the situation was on a more level pegging field, where campaigns like the Battle of Jena-Auerstedt in 1806 were unlikely to be repeated again.

      @Joshua Grover yes however Napoleon's tactics also had more manouvering touch and out of the box plans up to 1807. After the setbacks in Spain and at Aspern Essling, his tactical acumen seemed to be just throw men at the enemy more than outmaneuver them (not that there isn't exceptions like the smolensk manouver but even that showed Napoleons further complacency or inability to physically command the troops given his age or a combo of both)

      @Lorenzo D It does not count as a defeat for Napoleon as an overall commander, that did not occur until the Italian Campaign. Just like Toulon would not have counted as a defeat for Napoleon had the battle been lost since he was only an artillery officer at the time.

    • Lorenzo D
      Lorenzo D 6 ๊ฐœ์›” ์ „

      @Eru Iluvatar The video says "The first man to defeat Napoleon Bonaparte in battle" but the correct wording should be "The first man to defeat Napoleon Bonaparte in battle as commander in chief" because, as you rightly said, in Sardinia and Toulon, Napoleon was only a subordinate officer with important assignments.

    Account of a citizen seeing a French infantry division entering their city "The first infantryman entered; he was tall and thin with a pale face, covered in black, scrubby hair [โ€ฆ] We were amazed at his garb: he had a short cape covering his body, on his head was a small battered hat, of an indescribable shape, but pushed so far back and at such an insolent angle that the face and hat were for us the object of great amazement. The cloth trousers were dirty and exceedingly torn; his feet were bare in his worn out shoes; a small hairy dog watched his mouth very attentively as he bit off large chunks of bread to throw to him. Just imagine it! A soldier with a dog on a leash and half a loaf stuck on the end of his bayonet; from his musket hung a goose and on his hat, instead of insignia, gleamed a pewter spoon."

    In this campaign, Napoleon had many almost critical situations, but the steadfastness and dedication of ordinary French soldiers allowed Napoleon to win this campaign.
    Leo Tolstoy in "War and Peace" shows that little depends on the decisions of the commanders, and the main thing is the determination of the people to sacrifice themselves for victory.

      @Max Anderson Yes, Napoleon had extensive knowledge in mathematics, ballistics, geography, etc., he had a very agile and sharp mind. Napoleon was a brave and passionate man, but without his brave soldiers, it would have been difficult for him to achieve success.

      @alexandros also (I'm going based on this series and haven't done any extra research) Napoleon was the one who made them brave. Before he arrived the Army of Italy was an ill-equipped, starving force of demoralized men.
