Napoleon: Total War Historical Battles
Battle of Lodi – (10 May, 1796) Although not a decisive meeting, this was where Napoleon first made a name for himself and got a glimpse of his destiny. The nickname “the little corporal” remained with him throughout his early campaigns against Austria.
Battle of Arcole – (15-17 November, 1796) During which Napoleon successfully outflanked the Austrian army and carried the Tricolour across the Alpone river in person. By seizing the bridge the French prevented the escape of the Austrians, and therefore their planned relief of the siege at Mantua.
Battle of the Pyramids – (21 July, 1798) Where Napoleon deployed his lethal divisional squares in the shadow of the Great Pyramids at Giza, defeating the fearless Mameluke cavalry force.
