In the blood-soaked aftermath of a huge engagement at Eggmuhl, Archduke Charles has withdrawn south to regroup. But one Austrian corps remains isolated as a result of the battle--can the archduke find a way to reunite his full host? Meanwhile, Napoleon must contend with his own dilemma. While the French have scored a tactical victory, the campaign is far from over and the Austrians still control both Ratisbon and Landshut. Will the French aggressively pursue another major battle so soon, or might Napoleon have other plans?
APRIL 21, Turn 7
Journal: Fresh off their battlefield success the day before, the French deployed for two more battles in the early morning--one against the Austrian corps forced to retreat north after Eggmuhl, and another battle against Ratisbon, the key Danube River crossing. Charles declined to be drawn into another major engagement at Eggmuhl without his full host. This trade-off allowed the Austrians time to mass their army above Landshut, but left scattered northern elements to face Napoleon without support in two separate battles.
