Re: Hohenlinden
In Response To: Re: Hohenlinden ()

Good point?

So how many books did your read about Hohenlinden?

It is interesting how some persons react when one brings an non Napoloéon victory up - seems that they are afraid that such a decisive victory is tarnishing the fame of NB.

Also Hohenlinden has to be seen as the icing of the cake of an excellent campaign in Germany.

"Napolén, mal infomré peut-°etre, s'est donc montré injuste envers Moreau en l'accusant d'une "lenteur impardonable" (...)

En depit de cette erreur de tactique; Moreau sut obtenir par une poursuite énergique les plus brillants resultats. Moins de vingt jours aprés la victoire de Hohenlinden, l'armée autirhcinee avait perdue soixante-dix lieues de terrain, 25.000 prisonniers, 12.000 morts ou blessés, 140 pieces de canon, des magasins immenses."

P. 331

Picard, Ernest : Bonaparte et Moreau, Paris 1905

A victory which is second to none - on par with Austerlitz but won by a normal general who could not build up all this wonderfull propaganda machine as the then First Consul.

Best regards

Hans - Karl
