From the Encyclopedia of the Napoleonic Wars
In 1805 Napoleon faced the Third Coalition. The Kingdom of Italy constituted a secondary military theater in that war. Eugène played a role in organizing the Army of Italy, which was led by Marshal André Masséna.
Unlike Napoleon’s Grande Armée, the (French) Army of Italy had not been trained in camp for two years, so the French emperor had replaced Marshal Jean-Baptiste Jourdan with Masséna as military adviser to Eugène de Beauharnais, viceroy of Italy. Masséna’s army, comprising seven infantry and two cavalry divisions, was to attack the Austrian army under Charles (whose infantry had been reorganized into the new smaller battalions) to prevent it reinforcing the main Allied armies.
