Historical Campaigns | Historical Context

Do the Austrians break out of Ulm and succeed without Russian help?

Will the Russians decide the campaign before Austerlitz?

Can the French defeat two empires?

The campaign framework ties not only the scenarios together, but also the two campaigns, allowing the Allies multiple chances to alter history, and the French a long haul to repeat it.

This gives historical battles historical context, some battles will be more important to you than your opponent and vice versa.

True | From a Certain Point of View

Scouts reported the enemy main body advancing from the northeast.

But our briefing says they are retreating west of us!

With individualized maps for each Army, players must plan based on imperfect, sometimes conflicting information. Maps for each Army portray what the generals suspected and perceived. Sometimes reflecting reality, and sometimes not. Players begin the scenarios from this point, facing a similar problem to commanders on the field.

Every Uniform | Unit by Unit

For 1805 there are nearly 250 individual units, most with unique uniforms. Collecting all the necessary source material, across scores of books and images can be very daunting.

Even with those resources, laying a half-dozen references out on your table to paint the Mariupol Hussars is impractical.

To help, we've done the work for you. Hundreds uniform images: detailing every regiment featured in the scenarios. All in one place, for easy reference, organized by unit.

Officers, musicians, elites, rank and file, even NCOs, and support troops like sappers, pioneers, and artillery train. In one place.

No page flipping, no book shuffling.

Continuing | A Comprehensive Series

Roll up that Map is the second in a series of Campaign Guides to be published by The Wargaming Company for the Napoleonic Wars.

We're following up the success of Master of the World, 1812 in Russia with Napoleon's lightning campaign of 1805. A success that was so complete, the rest of his military career was judged against it. Years later Napoleon would think back and ask aloud, "How far from Austerlitz?"

But we aren't stopping here. Future titles will follow the same format:

  • Campaign Frameworks
  • Historical Scenarios
  • Host and Army Briefings
  • Extensive Uniform Guides

And there are many future titles to come.

Wertigen | 8 October 1805

Auffenberg was sent northwest out of Ulm by Mack to scout towards Donauwörth. Having reached Wertingen and presuming the French were still on the other side of the Danube River, Auffenberg distributed his infantry to the hamlets and villages around Wertingen to provide them shelter and rest. Having rejected the initial reports of French cavalry moving on Hohenreichen, he was essentially caught flat-footed by the French attack.

When Excelmans, Murat’s Aide-de-Camp, contacted Austrian infantry and cavalry in the outlying villages, he hit them in force at Hohenreichen throwing them back toward Wertingen. With his Force unexpectedly consolidated by their retreat, Auffenberg quickly attempted to setup a defensive position on the ridge southwest of town. Auffenberg realized he could not successfully withdraw towards Ulm until dark with the French cavalry pursuing him so closely and attempted to hold his position around Wertingen.

Günzburg | 9 October 1805

Napoleon had tasked Ney’s VI Corps d’armáe with isolating Ulm, and in doing so to take the necessary crossing points along the Danube River which would allow the rest of the Grande Armáe to flow over it. Mahler’s division, therefore, moved against Günzburg to secure the bridges in its vicinity.

d’Aspre was sent by Mack to hold the crossing points around Günzburg. Having ample resources, he broke his column into brigades and tasked each with covering a crossing point.

Malher’s division was determined but not strong, he similarly broke it up into three tactical groups sending one against each of the bridges. In the event, his attack against the Leipheim bridge never occurred and movement against Günzburg directly stalled out, but success was found just east of Günzburg, and once the French were across the Austrians withdrew.

Haslach-Jungingen | 11 October 1805

Mack thought the French had all crossed to the south bank of the Danube. Seeing Dupont’s division, he worried it was Murat’s entire wing of the Grande Armáe, led by Ney’s VI Corps d’armáe. Dupont’s aggression reinforced Mack’s presumptions.

Mack’s hesitation trickled down to his subordinates; Ferdinand attacked slowly, Schwarzenberg was ordered in separately, and Reisch and Weneck declined to commence their attacks until after the action around Jungingen had ended. Mack, having struck what he perceived to be a substantial and determined enemy, believed his exit was blocked and fell back on Ulm.

Elchingen | 14 October 1805

This was the last action before Mack surrendered at Ulm. After the abortive breakout attempt at Haslach-Jungingen, Mack dispatched Riesch to cover the river crossing at Elchingen. Despite having just been turned back by an inferior Force, Mack’s orders were full of optimism and confusion, believing the French Army was now in retreat to France. Meanwhile, the French were actually marching on Elchingen from the south, aiming to complete their isolation of Ulm.

Amstetten | 5 November 1805

Amstetten was the first action between the French and Russian Armies. The introduction of the Russians signified the opening of the Austerlitz phase of the campaign. Following the capitulation of Ulm, those elements of the Austrian Army which did not lay down their arms with the unfortunate General Mack had fled east. Many of them were picked up and surrendered as they were confronted by French pursuit elements, superior in both number and organization.

Many of those who did not meet this fate connected with Kutusov’s Russian Army somewhere about 23 October. The French pursuers, led by Murat and Lannes, caught up with them on 5 November and fought a handful of actions in the vicinity of Amstetten. The last of which lasted until 9PM before the two exhausted armies broke contact.

Dürenstein | 11 November 1805

Dürenstein is an abandoned and well ruined castle along the north bank of the Danube in eastern Austria. Mortier’s French corps was expecting to move quickly east along the Danube and capture the bridge at Krems, but the promised support of a flotilla failed to materialize. Strung out and unable to retreat before the impending attack, he chose to hunker in and await Dupont.

Kutusov planned a grand flanking maneuver through the mountains that promised to envelope Mortier, striking him on three sides and destroying Gazen’s division. He held back a substantial percentage of his army to address threats to his flanks from the mountain passes.

In the event, the mountain passes proved the undoing of the Russians. Their forces arrived radically later in the day than expected and largely exhausted. Gazen was able to hold off Miloradovich. When Dupont arrived he marched onto the field behind Dokhturov’s envelopment. Thus, the exact fate Kutusov hoped to impose upon Mortier came to pass for Dokhturov.

Schöngrabern | 14 November 1805

The Battle of Schöngrabern, also sometimes called Hollabrunn, pitted Murat’s advanced guard against Bagration’s rear guard. Murat was in a position to pressure the Russian rear and strike their baggage and supplies while they retreated, but he had engaged in an armistice with Bagration. The Russians had tricked Murat with a ploy, claiming that Kutusov and Napoleon were considering terms to conclude peace. Upon hearing of this ruse, the Emperor was both confused and disgusted that Murat squandered the opportunity by agreeing to such a foolish trick and urged Murat to attack. Unfortunately for Murat, the armistice required four hours notice prior to resuming hostilities and this resulted in Murat’s attack waiting until dark to advance.

Once hostilities opened around 5PM, the light was already failing. Between the darkness and the vineyards, movement was incredibly difficult. Coordination between the various elements was poor and further hampered by the fact that the cavalry and artillery were useless within the vineyards.

Wischau | 25 November 1805

Accounts of the Battle of Wischau vary radically and differ on which side succeeded. What is agreed upon is that the Russians viewed it as a victory and felt it signified their Army’s ability to confront the French on equal standing. The action itself was a minor cavalry skirmish between Wischau and Raussnitz, somewhere along the Olmütz road. It was an attempt by the Russians to scout towards Brünn as well as to prove themselves.

Austerlitz | 2 December 1805

After the collapse of the Austrian Army at Ulm, Napoleon’s Grande Armée swept up small remnants of the demoralized Austrians and refocused on pursuing Kutusov. Kutusov had switched 180º from marching in support of Mack’s strategic salient at Ulm to withdrawing back towards the Russian frontier and Buxhowden’s Russian Army.

Following the unification of the Russian Armies, and the ‘successful’ sortie against the French advanced cavalry pickets around Wischau, the Tsar became determined to attack. The political disposition at the Russo-Austrian headquarters was a confused mess of titles and clout. Kutusov opposed any offensive action but was quieted by his Tsar. The Austrian Emperor felt he was subordinate to Tsar Alexander, perhaps because his Austrians contributed such a small portion to the combined Army. In a strange trick of events, the Tsar latched onto a plan put forward by the Austrian Chief of Staff Franz von Weyrother.

Across the battlefield, Napoleon was deciding how to best address his own dispositions. Operating so far from the French frontier, the line of communication was stretched and the logistics strained. Upon the meeting of the opposing Armies, La Grande Armée had withdrawn from the heights of The Pratzen to the valley below, strung out along the Goldbach and semi-concentrated to the north end of the battlefield.
