Because of very rough events in France and armed responce of United Europe was Vega involved from 1793 to 1797 in so-called 1. coallition war. As Major he was in command of Art. and sometimes also in command of larger actions on his part of front. Until sign of treaty at Campoformio he was at German battlefield, where he could show his Art. knowledge. Skirmishes were often around forts and fortifications. Interesting is, that here Vega realized that otther things could also infact on battlefield not just science. His experience in Turkish wars was quite different from this one. On each side was a one Mil. soldiers, but most important factors were tehnic and tactik. Tehnic included also newest inventions, as balloon and telegraph (1), tactic was very dinamic, inspite of river, with fast movements on main attack points, such as crossings over Ren, forts and fortificated towns.

More to come...

Since I know (or I believe I know) you are a student, that's perhaps because you are a vet? Or more likely you are one of the editors/contributors? :lol: And this is quiet good and you should have used it as your quiz! :lol: 8)

Best Regards!
