Campaign of the Army of the Reserve in 1800 Bonaparte vor Mantua (Bonaparte Before Mantua) by Viktor Hortig This work was published in 1903 as the dissertation of Viktor Hortig. It takes as its subject the operations of General Bonaparte against Wurmser’s first advance during the critical week from 28 July 1796 to 6 August 1796, culminating in the battle of Castiglione. The particular focus of the study is on the evolution of Bonaparte’s planning as the campaign developed, and it includes a series of five beautifully done color maps showing the detailed locations of the opposing armies at different points in the campaign. German, English (forthcoming).
