Map from Beskrovni atlas showing the city at beginning of the siege. The Russians held the Star fort on the north side of the harbor, but the Allies didn't attack there. Note that Inkerman height is actually acrdoss the Chernaya River from the city and siege lines, but the Russian attack out of the city against the British positions on the ridges south of the river is called Battle of Inkerman, nevertheless. The terrain in the city is divided by the very long fingers of water and then the north-south ridges with deep ravines between them. The French were on the left and British on the right.
