Description

General Mack planned to attack Napoleon’s exposed lines of communication running through Nordlingen. Mack wasn’t wrong about the strategic value of Ulm, but he assumed that this conferred on him an automatic strategic victory. The deep flaw in his thinking was only revealed by Napoleon’s Wheel around Ulm. In the 18th century, such a move was inconceivable.

Napoleon managed to seal off the Austrian Army’s escape routes to the south and east, while Mack was fed erroneous news that revolution had broken out in France. Mack sent Reisch down the left bank of the Danube. On Oct. 11th, Mack pushed Dupont back from Haslach. On the 14th, Ney’s VI Corps fought Reisch’s column at Elchingen, and on the 15th stormed the Michaelsberg outside of Ulm. Mack’s army was surrounded.
