Battle of Vyazma: Information from Answers.com (2846 words)
Although the French succeeded in thwarting Miloradovich’s initial attempt to isolate and destroy the I Corps of Marshal Louis Nicolas Davout, they remained under pressure from the Russians for the rest of the battle, retiring under fire in a partial state of disorganization and suffering heavy casualties.
Miloradovich, fearing that the gap between Davout and the rest of the army would close before he could exploit it, felt it expedient to launch his cavalry attack without having the balance of his infantry on hand.
Miloradovich’s cavalry and his small body of infantrymen were now attacked from the east and the west, including being enveloped in French artillery shot, and were compelled to retreat from the road.
