15 March 1813 – South Germany

Tactical Map

The defeat of the previous day, coupled with their own casualties in the battle, resulted in the surrender of 11th Bavarian corps and the occupation of Augsburg by the Austrian Army.

The Bavarian Army was now reduced to three corps, and two of them had suffered heavy casualties and were retreating in disorder.   Oudinot accepted that he must accept defeat and ordered his army to retreat towards Ulm.

Schwartzenberg was content to allow his own battered Army to rest, resupply and reorganise.  He had achieved his campaign objective of taking and holding Augsburg and defeating the Bavarian Army.
