Mantova e suo circondario con la dichiarazione delle opere d’assedio fatte dall’ armata Francese in Luglio del 1796
Map of the initial siege of Mantua in June-July 1796. Napoleon had to raise the siege at the end of July because he needed the troops besieging the city to march northwest and support his attack against the Austrians at the Battle of Castiglione on 5-6 August. The commander of the siege, General Serurier, had to spike the guns and bury them quickly and then march to help Napoleon. The siege resumed at the end of the month when Napoleon had defeated and chased the Austrian relief army into the Tyrol. "Fratelli Bordiga inc. Milano" 2 visual scales [67mm = 600 Tese di Francia].
