Battle of Winterthur
The French Army of the Danube and elements of the Habsburg army fought for control of the town. The ability of the Austrians to sustain their 11-hour assault on the French line resulted in the consolidation of three Austrian forces on the plateau north of Zürich. In 1799, the French had a combined force of 250,000 troops.
About Battle of Winterthur in brief
The Battle of Winterthur took place during the War of the Second Coalition, part of the French Revolutionary Wars. The French Army of the Danube and elements of the Habsburg army, commanded by Friedrich Freiherr von Hotze, fought for control of the town. The ability of the Austrians to sustain their 11-hour assault on the French line resulted in the consolidation of three Austrian forces on the plateau north of Zürich, leading to the French defeat a few days later. In 1799, the French had a combined force of 250,000 troops, but this was on a paper, but on all fronts: central Italy, northern Italy, the upper Rhineland, the Swiss cantons, the Netherlands, and The Netherlands. In mid-spring 1799 the French Directory’s military strategy in 1799 was called for offensive campaigns on all three fronts: Italy, central Italy and the upper Rhineland. In April 1792 the French National Convention declared war on Austria, and in May the French invaded Naples and established the Parthenopean Republic. In June 1799 Archduke Charles attacked French positions at Züich and forced the French to withdraw beyond the Limmat. In July 1799 Napoleon Bonaparte led the French into war with the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and the war ended with the Peace of Leoben and the subsequent Treaty of Campo Formio. The Treaty called for meetings between the involved parties to work out the exact territorial and remunerative details, but the Congress quickly derailed in a mire of intrigue and diplomatic posturing.
In the end, the Treaty was signed in October 1799 and the French and Austrians agreed to a joint offensive campaign on the Rhine and the Adriatic Sea in 17100. The war ended in September 1799 with the signing of the Treaty of Lausanne and the end of the First Coalition. In March 17100, the Battle of Würzburg took place, with the French taking control of parts of Germany and Austria. The Battle of Verdun took place in March 1710, when the French took control of most of Germany, but not all of its territory. The battle of Wurzburg was won by the French, who took the city of Mainz and the surrounding area. In May 1710 the French demanded more territory and the Austrian government agreed to cede the designated territories to them. In October 1709, the treaty was signed and the two sides agreed to an offensive offensive on all four fronts. In September 1709 the French attacked the Austrian capital of Vienna and captured the city. The next day the French began a series of battles against the Austrian army, which included the battles of Schaffhausen, Neerwinden, Mainz, Amberg and WürZburg. In December 1711 the French occupied the Austrian city of Dusseldorf, and by March 1713 the French were in control of much of Switzerland and the Swiss Confederation.
