The Battle of Inkerman was a turning point in the Crimean War. Illustration by C. L. Doughty

5 November marks the anniversary of the Battle of Inkerman during the Crimean War in 1854, a turning point in the war between the French and British Allies and the Russians.

Fought close to Sevastopol, the Russians attacked and attempted to outflank the Allies as dawn broke. Strong defence by the the British troops meant that French reinforcements arrived before the area was overwhelmed and the Russians were forced to withdraw. Although the Russians made no further large-scale attacks, the battle at Inkerman meant there was no quick victory for the Allies in taking Sevastopol.
