The Return From Inkermann by Lady Butler
THE RETURN FROM INKERMANN
by Lady Butler
The Battle of Inkerman was an action fought between the allied armies of Great Britain, France and the Ottoman Empire against the Russian Imperial Army, during the Crimean War on November 5, 1854. In an attempt to break the British siege at Sevastopol the Russians launched a massive attack against the under-manned British lines, fought in poor weather and foggy conditions neither side realised the true situation or the Russians their advantages as they developed on the battlefield.
Despite being severely outnumbered the British and French reinforcements held their ground. The amount of fog around the battlefield meant that troops on both sides were cut off, fighting in battalion-sized groups or less. As a result the battle is often referred to as " The Soldiers Battle ". Although the Russian attack proved unsuccessful, it denied the allies any attempt in gaining a quick victory at Sevestapol, condemning the allied armies to two years of terrible winters on the heights above the city.
