Whilst General Joubert was still near Primolano, Napoleon marched with 32,000 men, protected by a guarding force of 11,000 under Massena, to the Tagliamento River. Near Valvasone Napoleon and Massena’s forces rushed the Tagliamento under the cover of heavy artillery fire and forced the Austrians back to Udine. This was the beginning of the march that led to Loeben and the Peace of Campo Formio. From "The Life of Napoleon Bonaparte".
