8 August, 1812

A large scale cavalry action, Inkovo saw some 3000 horsemen under General Sebastiani bested by 7000 cossacks under Count Platov.

The French suffered several hundred casualties, but the success did nothing to stiffen the resolve of the Russian leader Barclay de Tolly.

For some reason he did not take advantage of the momentum and halted his line of interception with Napoleon Bonaparte's Grande Armee.

The French, however, used the Russian's indecision to cross the Dnieper in force and move forward for what they hoped would be a decisive battle at Smolensk.
