Battle of Pozzolo


The Battle of Pozzolo (also known as the Battle of the Mincio River, and Monzambano) was fought on 25 December 1800 and resulted the difficult victory of French under General Brune against Austrians under General Bellegarde.

Following the armistice agreed after the Battle of Marengo the Austrians had held the line of the Mincio river. The French Army of Reserve was now commanded by Brune after Napoleon's departure for Paris. On Christmas Day 1800, he attacked the Austrian positions and broke their line. The Austrians fell back eastwards over the Adige River. Two days later the armistice was renewed.
