21 April, 1796

Battlefield Guides for Northern Italy

With his opponents on their heels after defeats at Montenotte and Dego, Napoleon Bonaparte pursued General Baron Colli's Piedmontese and caught him at Mondovi.

With a small advantage in numbers, 17,500 to 13,000, Bonaparte went on the attack but had his first assault driven off.

The French general was not to be denied and a further advance forced Colli to move.

The Piedmontese signed an armistice two days later.
