In Response To: Re: Macdonald's reliability. ()

He did not make too much of it. Eugene had just been defeated by Archduke John. A better general would have destroyed him. Grenier should have been decimated by the Austrian cavalry if only they had been sent in. Macdonald may not have been the tactical genius that the republican was but, he had one key skill, the very skill that was required by a dispirited, defeated army. He knew how to rally troops. The most ardent Macdonald supporter, that would be me as you know, would not claim the Katzbach was his finest hour but,I would claim that the days following do demonstrate his great skill. Napoleon himself was astonished to find everything in order so soon after the battle.
