The Ulm Campaign consisted of a series of French and Bavarian military maneuvers and battles to outflank and capture an Austrian army in 1805 during the War of the Third Coalition. It took place in the vicinity of and inside the Swabian (then Bavarian) city of Ulm. The French Grande Armée, led by Napoleon Bonaparte, comprised 210,000 troops organized into seven corps, and hoped to knock out the Austrian army in the Danube before Russian reinforcements could arrive. Through rapid marching, Napoleon conducted a large wheeling maneuver that captured an Austrian army of 23,000 under General Mack on 20 October at Ulm, bringing the total number of Austrian prisoners in the campaign to 60,000. The campaign is generally regarded as a strategic masterpiece and was influential in the development of the Schlieffen Plan in the late 19th century.
The victory at Ulm did not end the war, since a large Russian army under Kutuzov was still near Vienna. The Russians withdrew to the northeast to await reinforcements and to link up with surviving Austrian units. The French followed and captured Vienna on 12 November. On 2 December the decisive French victory at Austerlitz removed Austria from the war. The resulting Treaty of Pressburg in late December brought the Third Coalition to an end and left Napoleonic France as the major power in Central Europe, leading to the War of the Fourth Coalition with Prussia and Russia the following year.

Added a Campaing sheet.
For those, who are not familiar with the MM44 campaign rules,
the player gain not only the VP for the game result (Medals column), but also additional or penalty VP for fulfilling objectives (Objective Track), those VP can be different for each nation.
So it´s not only necessary to kill the enemy, you should also meet "objective" conditions for the campaign :)

Example) In scenario 302-Günzburg, both players can get 5 objective Medals with the objective. If one side don´t have any objective banner, he get a -1 penalty VP for the campaign result.
If a player should be so bold and lucky, to get all 5 objective banner in the game, he would get +3 additonal VP for the campaign.
With this rule, scenario/campaign designer can "balance" some scenarios e.g.

If you wage war, do it energetically and with severity. This is the only way to make it shorter and consequently less inhuman.~Napoleon
