Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Battle of Oltenitza was fought on 4 November, 1853 during the Crimean War. In this battle an Ottoman army under the command of Omar Pasha defeated the Russian forces. This battle took place during the Danube campaign of the Crimean War. In the build-up to war, Russia had occupied the Danubian Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia, positioning troops on the (northern) left bank of the Danube, the border of Ottoman territory. The Ottoman Empire had responded by moving troops to the right bank to face them. In the centre Russian forces south of Bucharest were faced by Ottoman forces in the fortresses of Rustchuk and Silistria. Following the Ottoman ultimatum on 4 October 1853 to withdraw within 2 weeks, Ottoman forces under Omer Pasha crossed the river to force the Russians out.show more
