A re-imagined Battle of Alma - Lone Warrior Blog
Photo 2 offers an aerial view of the center of the tabletop. The three hills of Troia Ridge are evident, as are the two bridges across the Lubganak. Sitting directly in front of the allied axis of advance is the small village of Khanlarmack. At the very top of the picture, the first slope of Chernaya Heights can be seen.
Photo 3 shows the left sector of the miniaturized battlefield. In addition to another farm complex, several fields, and a larger ford, there are a couple of wooded areas on this flank. The heavy wood “protects” the allied left flank. The light wood (the pale green shape at the top of the picture) sits firmly on the Russian side of the Lubganak.
