Borodino - The Start of the Battle
This map shows the position of the French and Russian infantry corps at the start of the Battle of Borodino. At this point the Russians have very strong forces on their right wing, but the French never attacked that far north. Raevski, Borizdin and Tuchkov thus found themselves facing the brunt of the French attack and the Russians were forced to move troops left as the battle went on.
