Mack's Predicament

Text: 

<p>On receiving word of loss of Donauw&#246;rth, Mack finally recognized his predicament. He wrote the Emperor Francis: &ldquo;Since my courier of yesterday evening, our position has become alarming. We have confirmed the unfortunate news that Bernadotte has forced Ansbach, whereby he gained many marches whereby he has arrived sooner on the Danube. We will do everything possible in order to defeat him or to find our junction with the Russianns without fighting, but everything has become much more difficult because of this unfortunate event which no one thought possible.&ldquo; It could not have helped Mack’s situation that Archduke Ferdinand joined the army at Ulm on October 7. With the exception of brief forays outside the town, he will remain there until his escape on October 15. (Kagan, 399)</p>
