[font='Verdana','sans-serif']As a part of the 3rd Coalition’s grand plans, Russian and British forces in the Mediterranean were to cooperate in the campaign against the French in Italy . British forces from Malta and Russian forces in the Ionian Islands, reinforced by additional troops sent from Odessa, would land in Naples under the overall command of General of Infantry Moritz Petrovich Lacy. Augmented by the Neapolitan army, the force would liberate the Italian peninsula, occupied by a corps under General Gouvion St. Cyr, from the French while the Archduke Charles with the Austrian Army of Italy would oppose the main French Army of Italy under Marshal Andre Massena. Events in Germany moved too quickly, however, and by the time transports were assembled and favorable winds had allowed the allied forces to land in Naples, the Austrian Army of Germany had surrendered to Napoleon at Ulm and Charles had withdrawn from Italy pursued by Massena. After sitting for several weeks awaiting a clarification of events, the force re-embarked, the Russians returning to the Ionians, and the British to Malta . The Neapolitans were left to their fate at the hands of an irate Napoleon who sent Massena to occupy Naples in a rapid campaign in spring of 1806.[/font]
