The Battle of Inkerman: was fought during the Crimean War on the 5th of November 1854 between the allied armies of Britain, France and the Ottoman Empire against the Imperial Russian Army. The battle broke the will of the Russian Army to defeat the allies in the field, and was followed by the Siege of Sevastopol. The role of troops fighting mostly on their own initiative due to the foggy conditions during the battle has earned the engagement the name “The Soldier’s Battle”. Despite being severely outnumbered, the allied troops held their ground, becoming a marvel of each regiment’s tradition and tenacity. The amount of fog during the battle led to many of the troops on both sides being cut off, in battalion sized groups or less. The Russian attack, although unsuccessful, had denied the allies any attempt at gaining a quick victory in the Siege of Sevastopol and condemned the allied armies to two terrible winters on the heights. Following this battle, the Russians made no further large scale attempts to defeat the allies in the field. The return from Inkerman print.
