Bonaparte further divided his force, using the mountain-fighting Masséna and his division on his left flank to threaten the Austrian line of communication to Carinthia 36 Napoleonic Warfare through the great pass at Tarvis. Many small rearguard engagements occurred along the route of the two primary columns, and Charles was driven steadily backward, never adequately establishing a defense that could not be outflanked.

He gathered up the division from the third column (General Meszaros) near Mantua after slipping reinforcements and supplies into that fortress and then withdrew rapidly up the valley of the Adige to Roveredo. In addition to the losses sustained by Quasdanovitch, he had suffered only about 3,000 total losses (including prisoners taken during his retreat).
