Battle of Inkerman, 5 November 1854 (2820 words)
The Battle of Inkerman was the third major engagement of the Crimean War, between the Allies and the Russian on the Crimean Peninsula.
The British knew it as Mount Inkerman (and by the Russians as Cossack Mountain) and was bordered to the west by the Careenage Ravine and to the east by the Sapoune Ridge.
The third column was led by General P D Gorchakov with 22,000 troops and eighty-eight guns and would advance across the Tchernaya River towards the Fedioukine Hills and act as a distraction to the Allies as well as being ready to support the main attack if necessary.
