Ney Ordered to Take Ulm

Text: 

Napoleon now believed that Mack had abandoned Ulm and he ordered Ney to take it. Although Ney shared Napoleon's belief that Mack was withdrawing from Ulm, he realized that he was being asked to attack a much larger force. In his own mind Napoleon seems to have been positioning his forces for a battle against what he thought was a retreating army. Without intending it, he had nevertheless managed to seal off the Austrian army's escape routes to the south and east. (Kagan, 412-3)
