Example text

On his right, and somewhat forward of his main line, lay the chateau of Hougoumont, which included woods, farm buildings and a garden. Wellington recognized the tactical importance of Hougoumont and La Haye Sainte, and placed reliable garrisons in each. These strongpoints presented obstacles to a French attack on the Allied right and centre, and could offer enfilading fire to any opposing troops that sought to bypass them. Hougoumont was large enough, moreover, to make a sweep around Wellington's right more difficult, though not impossible.

On the extreme right, Poniatowski began his efforts at turning the Russian left. He succeeded in capturing Utitsa and part of the woods to the north of the village, aided by the transfer of some of the Russian troops in this sector to the area around the hard-pressed fleches. General Alexander Tuchkov was killed in the seesaw battle around Utitsa, where the Poles, despite gallant efforts, found themselves unable to achieve a breakthrough. Kutusov reacted accordingly, shifting large numbers of reserves from his as-yet unengaged right wing in order to reinforce his centre and left.

The extent to which Bliicher may be said to have turned the tide of battle remains a subject of considerable controversy, but at the very least he enabled Wellington to assume the offensive once Anglo-Allied infantry and artillery repulsed the attack of the Imperial Guard in the early evening.
