Napoleon crosses the Mincio: Borghetto (1796)
Borghetto is the fourth in the series of operational-level scenarios I have developed to accompany the forthcoming English edition of Clausewitz's history of Napoleon's 1796 campaign. With casualties of under 1,000 on each side, the battle of Borghetto was a minor action in tactical terms, but the crossing of the Mincio was a very significant operation which resulted in the expulsion of the Austrian army from Italy (for three months, anyway).
