Seizing Bolzano on 18 November, he then marched his brigade south to Trento.

Turning east into the Val Sugana and south into the Brenta River valley, the Austrians surprised the French garrison of Bassano on 22 November.

As some of Napoleon's corps moved south into the Alps and the Austrian army of Archduke Charles, Duke of Teschen withdrew from Italy, Jellacic's force was cut off from the rest of Austria.

In a remarkable trek, his cavalry set off for Bohemia and evaded capture.

Marching hard, the Austrians reached Castelfranco Veneto the next evening.
