Very many thanks Happy Hussar,

A most useful expansion – though still some discrepancies with info from the others (?). Will have to see if I can find the KuK histories for a cross check…..

However a very useful map of the battle at link

From "Bataille du Mincio du 8 fevrier 1814 : entre l'armee du Prince Eugene et celle du Marechal Comte de Bellegarde"
by Vacani, Camillo Publication date 1857 Publisher Milan : Francois Pagnoni at link
shows the Austrian strength at Mincio considerably less than that shown above in happy Hussar's post (43 battalions and 24 squadrons)- see link

Map at link

Still trying to access Georgi von Holtz's "Die innerosteriechische armee 1813 und 1814"; and will cross check with Wrede's regimental battle histories….

von Winterfeldt02 Dec 2017 12:44 a.m. PST

Holtz, a very thin book, contains OdBs at the start of February 1814 – it is a bit different to that one supplied by Happy Husar – but Acerbi is in my view a top notch researcher.

Holtz for example gives

Feldmarschalleutnant Paul von Radivojevich

Brigade Generalmajor Josef Freiherr Bogdan von Strumbruck

Jäger Bataillon Nr. 11
4 Bataillone Deutschmeister Nr. 4
3 Bataillone Beaulieu Nr. 58
8 Eskadronen Frimont Husaren Nr. 9

Brigade Generalmajor Josef Steffanini de Monte Airone

Jäger Batailon Nr. 10
1 Bataillon Warasdiner Kreutzer Nr. 5
6 Eskadronen Merveldt Ulanen Nr. 1

Brigade Generalmajor August Graf Vecsey von Hajnackeo

4 Bataillone Chasteler Nr, 27
6 Eskadronen Karl Ludwig Ulanen Nr, 3

page 111/112

Very many thanks on Holtz (I will desist on that front).

While I agree wholeheartedly that Enrico Acerbi is absolutely top drawer there are some niggling questions as to the wide variations between his OoB, Digby-Smith's & Nafziger's…. Therefore will struggle on with Oberstleutenant Alphons Freiherrn von Wrede's "Geschichteder K. u. K. Wehrmacht" and highlight any issues.

von Winterfeldt02 Dec 2017 8:56 a.m. PST

Prince of Essling

Let me know about your finds, it is interesting to see Holtz for example given Hoch und Deutschmeister 4 battalions – while elsewhere there are only 3 – surely one of these battalions must have been a so called Landwehrbattalion attached to a line battalion but wearing a grey coat instead of a white one.

HappyHussar04 Dec 2017 10:38 a.m. PST

Agree with von Winderfeldt on the 4th battalions.

Prince of Essling15 Dec 2017 3:54 p.m. PST

I have now finished staring very long and hard at various sources for the Austrian OoB –

1. Le Prince Eugène et Murat 1813-14 Tome 5 by Maurice-Henri Weil…. Annexe II has a summary for 6 February which I have set out below, and Annex e XXVIII has a summary OoB as at 16 february 1814.
2. Feldzug der osterreicher in illyrien und italien in den jahren 1813 und 1814 by J Sporschil …. page 79 has a listing for 11th February 1814
3. Guerres des Français en Italie, 1794-1814 Tome 2
4. Bataille du Mincio du 8 février 1814 entre l'Armée du Prince Eugène et celle du Maréchal Comte de Bellegarde by Chevalier Vacani …. contains table showing numbers of battalions, squadrons as at 6 February 1814
5. Campagne de 1814 [Suite tableaux indiquant les etat des armees – Legends et plans explicatifs du batailles] ….. contains OoB for 1st January & 11th February 1814
6. Streffleurs Militärische Zeitschrift (various editions from 1818 onwards)
7. Geschichteder K. u. K. Wehrmacht – volumes 1 to 5 by Oberstleutenant Alphons Freiherrn von Wrede – while useful regimental details are not complete for example IR 63 Bianchi – shows only the later regimental information, so have also looked at various regimental histories to try and get some clarity/answers but still many questions

As a result I think there is no easy answer on this topic. Below for information.

Digby Smith's OBs are at best a nice starting point. I have noted many errors in his large "Data Book" work. He says he just goes by the sources but he rarely bothered to cross check them. He has no intention of updating his book either.

It remains at best a starting point and not a very good resource.

George Nafziger's OB pages are also similar but filled with many typos and the names are often at odds with more definitive works.

I respect more what George was trying to do. He gave us definitive OBs at a small cost (in the days when you paid for them). Again, errors abounded but hey, his contribution is immense.

Now if I only could find a set of OBs for the Russians in 1807 that included strengths for the regiments and brigade organizational listings ;)

@Prince of Essling
Thanks for your hard work and sharing it

Prince of Essling18 Dec 2017 3:07 p.m. PST

Turning to 1807 Russians, the two books by James R Arnold & Ralph R Reinerstein "Crisis in the Snows – Russia confronts Napoleon The Eylau Campaign 1806-1807" and "Napoleon's Triumph – La Grande Armee versus the Tsar's Army The Friedland Campaign 1807" have Russian OoBs including many (most?) of the Brigade commanders. However lacking is the actual strength of units, though it contains estimates by Alexander Mikhailovsky-Danilevsky of the average strengths – of a battalion and squadron at the start of the campaign i.e. Bennigsen's units 600 men per battalion, 100 per squadron & 100 men per battery; and von Lettow-Vorbeck estimate for Buxhowden's units 480 men per battalion, 90 per squadron, and 100 per battery.

Alexander Mikhailovsky-Danilevsky's work "Описаніе второй войны Императора Александра съ Наполеономъ въ 1806 и 1807 годахъ" has the Russian OoB – book at link

Oscar von Lettow-Vorbeck's "Der Krieg von 1806 und 1807 Volume 3" has Frencxh, Prussian and Russian OoBs – see link or PDF link

For the French strengths Paul Fourcart's "Campagne de Pologne : Novembre-Decembre 1806 – Janvier 1807 (Pultusk et Golymin) Tome 2" at link is very helpful

Also Karl von Plotho "Tagebuch während des Krieges zwischen Rußland und Preußen einerseits, und Frankreich andrerseits in den Jahren 1806 und 1807" has various OoBs see link
