There is, however, a short work by FN Maude, The Ulm Campaign, which might be what you are looking for.

The reason for Napoleon's change from facing England across the Channel was the Austrian invasion of Bavaria, Napoleon's ally. The Austrians were 'hired' by the British government and given subsidies to once again fight against France. Sherwig's Guineas and Gunpowder outlines quite well the series of subsidies that Great Britain gave to the coalitions to fight Napoleon on the continent.

You might want to take a look at Alembert's and Colin's study of the 1805 campaign, which is available on Google Books:


Thank you Massena, appreciated
