Description

Inkerman is a city in the Crimean peninsula. It is situated 5 kilometres east of Sevastopol, at the mouth of the Chernaya River that flows into the Sevastopol Inlet (North Inlet). The battle of Inkerman was fought during the Crimean War on 5 November 1854 by the armies of Britain, France and the Ottoman Empire allied 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. In the print, the trees have been burnt and cropped by artillery fire
