Then, pray, tell us why the 'gallant' Kutusov failed to support his colleagues at the Berezina. Operations lasted from 23-29 November when Eble burned the bridges. Kutusov didn't arrive at Ucholoodi, over six miles southeast of Borisov, until the 30th; Miloradovich arrived at Borisov on the 29th. Platov had arrived in the area on the 27th but did and accomplished nothing. If I recall correctly Yermelov was quite critical of Kutusov's non-participation as was Clausewitz.
