Campaign Move 40 – Bad News from Lonato

Move 40 – 1600 8 September 1796

As Bonaparte prepares to attack the Austrian relief column he receives alarming reports from Lonato.   The battle is going badly for the French and Argereau warns that he and Serurier will have to retreat towards Brescia.

Bonaparte orders 3rd and 6th divisions to hold their ground and prevent the relief column from reaching Mantua, but not to engage in battle   He rides north to determine for himself just how bad things are at Lonato
