One of the most important battles of the Napoleonic wars and possibly Napoleon's greatest victory, the battle of Austerlitz was the culmination of Napoleon's plan to break the Austrian-Russian coalition that had formed against him. The French army numbered about 68,000 while the combined enemy forces totalled some 90,000. The French Emperor's first move was to fein a retreat in order to provoke the Russians, under Kutuzov to attack his right flank. This they did while at the same time the Austrians attempted to turn his left.

Both of these flank attacks were successfully beaten back and turned by the French, after which the weakened allied centre was attacked by Marshal Soult. After fierce fighting the allied centre broke and a complete rout ensued. By the battle of Austerlitz, Napoleon thus broke the coalition which was forming against him.
