Napoleon Orders Capture of Bridges across the Danube

Text: 

<p>Napoleon ordered Soult and Murat to seize bridges at Donauw&#246;rth. Ney and Lannes had already been ordered to concentrate in the direction of Donauw&#246;rth. As Kagan explains, &ldquo;Napoleon believed that the main Austrian body was at Ulm. He had sent his main body to Donauw&#246;rth to ensure that it could not break out from the trap … the objective of this maneuver was the encirclement of Mack's main body at Ulm.&rdquo; (Kagan, 395)</p>
