  • A Batalha de Günzburg foi uma batalha que teve lugar a 9 de Outubro de 1805, cujo objectivo era a tomada de uma ponte sobre o Danúbio, em Günzburg, pelas forças francesas comandadas pelo general-de-divisão Jean-Pierre Firmin Malher, face a um exército austríaco, liderado pelo tenente-general Karl Mack von Leiberich. A divisão de Malher conseguiu capturar a ponte e mantê-la face aos contra-ataques austríacos. A batalha ocorreu durante as guerras da Terceira Coligação no contexto alargado das Guerras Napoleónicas. Após a invasão da Baviera pelas tropas austríacas de Mack, esta região foi alvo de uma forte ofensiva pelo exército de Napoleão. Quando os corpos de Napoleão ameaçaram cercar o exército de Mack, este manteve as sua tropas, erradamente, perto da cidade de Ulm. À medida que as forças francesas iam bloqueando as vias da retirada austríaca a leste, Mack tentou mover o seu exército para o lado sul do Danube. Depois de ter recebido ordens para tomar as pontes do Danúbio, o marechal de França Michel Ney enviou Malher para capturar a travessia em Günzburg. O principal ataque de Malher às duas pontes fracassaram face a a uma forte defesa austríaca. Contudo, a chegada atrasada de uma unidade francesa permitiu a captura da ponte leste ,que tinha sido recentemente construída pelos austríacos, e a sua manutenção até à noite. Desencorajado pela presença dos franceses, Mack deu ordem para que os seus soldados retirassem para Ulm, a 22 km a sudoeste de Günzburg. (pt)
  • The Battle of Günzburg on 9 October 1805 saw General of Division Jean-Pierre Firmin Malher's French division attempt to seize a crossing over the Danube River at Günzburg in the face of a Habsburg Austrian army led by Feldmarschall-Leutnant Karl Mack von Lieberich. Malher's division managed to capture a bridge and hold it against Austrian counterattacks. The battle occurred during the War of the Third Coalition, part of the larger Napoleonic Wars. After Mack's Austrian army invaded Bavaria, it found itself the target of a powerful offensive by the army of Emperor Napoleon I of France. When Napoleon's corps threatened to envelop Mack's army, the Austrian general unwisely held his ground near the city of Ulm. As the French armies blocked the Austrian retreat routes to the east, Mack attempted to move his army to the south bank of the Danube. After receiving orders to seize the Danube bridges, Marshal Michel Ney sent Malher to capture the crossing at Günzburg. Malher's main attack on two bridges failed in the face of a vigorous Austrian defense. However, a late-arriving French unit captured the eastern bridge that had just been rebuilt by the Austrians and was able to hold on to it until evening. Discouraged by the encounter, Mack ordered his soldiers to march back to Ulm which is 22 kilometers west-southwest of Günzburg. (en)
