Battle of Magnano

Buttapietra, VR, Italy

In the Battle of Magnano on 5 April 1799, an Austrian army commanded by Pál Kray was a clear-cut victory by Kray over the French, with the Austrians sustaining 6,000 casualties while inflicting losses of 8,000 men and 18 guns on their foes. The defeat was a crushing blow to French morale and prompted Schérer to plead with the French Directory to be relieved of command.
