Battlefield Guides for Northern Italy

At the head of 45,000 starving troops, Napoleon Bonaparte moved into Lombardy and found himself between a large Piedmontese army under General Baron Colli (25,000) and an Austrian force of 35,000 under Jean Pierre Beaulieu.

Moving between them, he took 10,000 men and smashed through a small force of 4500 troops on Beaulieu's right at Montenotte.
