If there was Suvorov at command with his rapid decisions and lightning speed charges the battle wud have been won fast by allies. The plan was perfect and the position was good. But that slow attack on left flang was decisive. Suvorov wud have made fast attacking move to the flang just before dawn. And for sure easily break french with their whole flang by bayonet charge. But the worst possible high commander Alexander I needed provement to admit he is worthless as a commander and as a man. Thousand of lifes for this idiot...(

Pete was such a hypocrite, he pretty much caused most of the Napoleonic wars, mostly by bribing England's allies into fighting his battles... to KEEP THE PEACE?? Also the royal navy WASN'T guarding the channel in 1805, it was busy in the Mediterranean. Invasion of Britain would've probably worked (and saved a few millions European lives) if it wasn't for the 3d coalition.

As Napoleon's hidden divisions appeared from the fog, an aide of Tzar Peter said "Dear God, they come as if from a clear blue sky". The Tzar responded: "You should rather say they come from hell". Robert E. Lee would much later recognize Napoleon's flanking maneuver at Chancellorsville. Union Gen Joe Hooker believed he'd found the perfect place to emulate the Austerlitz assault. Unfortunately for Hooker, he was up against the one man who many believe was Napolean's equal. Lee would cut off the charge on his left and smash the Union army that day.

What flanking maneuver? Napoleon never attacked the flank at Austerlizt, he enticed the allies to weaken their center then drove Soults corps through it like a wedge, allowing him to swing south and encircle allied forces near Telnizt village. As for being Napoleons equal I have never heard one credible Historian ever compare Lee to Napoleon. Lee won like 15 strategically barren victories, often employed horribly outdated tactics, was beating enemy generals who had no ability to seize the initiative, and failed to look at the wars wider picture. Lee was an honorable man and a capable tactician, but you are crossing the line when you try to say he was Napoleons equal. Also Hookers army was not smashed at Chancellorsville; he lost 17,000 men out of an army of 79,000 and his forces withdrew largely intact because they were not effectively pursued. Chancellorsville was a very impressive tactical victory for Lee but it was not a deciding blow and the Union army escaped largely unscathed.

What's the likely travel time between all those villages? Knowing how long it'd take to walk, say, from Kobelnitz to Puntowitz would help visualize the scale of this battle and the place it's being fought at.

@Ieuan Hunt Every single army of the known world lived off the land. That's war. And the worst cases of armies living off the land happened during the 30 years war in Europe, particularly in Germany. Diseases, starvations, destruction, mass killings, and cannibalism. The population of a city like Magdeburg was entirely annihilated. In La Rochelle, a large proportion of the population was killed too.

@Ieuan Hunt LOL. I read that whole thing you sent me and it does not counter any of what I said in my comment, if anything It reinforces what I stated by talking about how Napoleon never even started the wars, so you are a complete moron buddy and I think you need to do a bit more reading up on Napoleon. I would highly recommend Michal Broers two volumes on the life of Napoleon which are very balanced and non Bias. BTW please don't respond with comments about Egypt because the Egyptian campaign was thought up by Talleyrand and Napoleon was only a general at the time.

Greeting from Prace (Pratzen). I live it that very village. There are festivities every year. One on Napoleon's birthday and one on anniversary of Battle of Austerlitz. I have to admit, that Napoleon was very good general. And I have to say: I hate those festivities. Why do we celebrate a guy WHO BEATED US! WE LOST THAT DAY! We should only commemorate all who died because of the Battle (by the way, only one house was occupied after the battle, all other villagers either fled or died).
