Part of The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars
Date : 04 June 1799 - 07 June 1799
Archduke Charles attacked Maséna's defensive positions in the mountains around Zurich. Assaults on the French right were made on the 4th, being halted only by the intervention of Maséna himself at the head of his Grenadiers. Further actions forced the French to fall back to stronger positions behind the River Limmat, but Charles could force them no further and withdrew.
