Hey guys. I have been reading a book and it talked about the battle of Austerlitz. Does anyone else have knowledge on the tactics used? I would like to open a discussion about it.

I know some rough outline of the battle of Austerlitz, but specific tactics? I guess you should specify that.

well it is very simple there was fog and half of napoleons army on his right flank was covered.
the austrians and the russians thought it would be the weakest spot they attacked it with an great part left of the army and attaked the flank.
while napoleon goes with his left flank to take the pratzen platuea when he has conquered the platuea, he attacks the army from behind and that was his most succesful battle.

I don't understand why Mapoleon did not just set up on the hill in the firt place. He had the chance to.

he let them have it to lure them into the attack
It was preferable, as you know, to hold the higher ground
