On 11 October 1805, Austrian forces under General Mack left the protection of their fortified positions at Ulm to engage the French army near the village of Haslach. Mack divided his forces into two columns, one advancing along the road from Ulm to Lehr, Jungingen, and Haslach, the other along the direct route from Ulm to Haslach. The flanking column under Generals Ferdinand and Schwarzenberg encountered a skillfully executed strongpoint defence at the village of Jungingen, which they could not overcome.
