Description

The Napoleonic Wars (1803-15) were a series of wars declared against Napoleon's French Empire by opposing coalitions. As a continuation of the wars sparked by the French Revolution of 1789, they revolutionized European armies and played out on an unprecedented scale, mainly owing to the application of modern mass conscription. French power rose quickly as Napoleon's armies conquered much of Europe but collapsed rapidly after France's disastrous invasion of Russia in 1812. Napoleon's empire ultimately suffered complete military defeat resulting in the restoration of the Bourbon monarchy in France.

One of the most important battles of the Napoleonic wars and possibly Napoleon's greatest victory, the battle of Austerlitz was the culmination of Napoleon's plan to break the Austrian-Russian coalition that had formed against him. The French army numbered about 68,000 while the combined enemy forces totaled some 90,000. The French Emperor's first move was to feign a retreat in order to provoke the Russians, under Kutuzov to attack his right flank. This they did while at the same time the Austrians attempted to turn his left. Both of these flank attacks were successfully beaten back and turned by the French, after which the weakened allied center was attacked by Marshal Soult. After fierce fighting the allied center broke and a complete rout ensued. By the battle of Austerlitz, Napoleon thus broke the coalition which was forming against him.
