I'd like to know more about Archduke Charles' "dubious schemes".

To what 'dubious schemes' of the Archduke Charles are you referring?

Wellington considered him to be the best of the allied senior commanders.

Clausewitz rips the archduke to shreds repeatedly in his analysis of the 1799 campaign. The fiasco of Archduke Charles's abortive operation to cross the Aare is particularly amusing and reads like a badly written wargame scenario. English translations forthcoming:
