One of the most important battles of the Napoleonic wars. 
Napoleon started his retreat from Moscou  South to find good winter quarters. 
His route was blocked by the Russians in Maloyaroslavets.
The Russians were beaten back, but not conclusively, as they still occupied the hills surrounding the town.  Due to the result Napoleon took the road he came, through a path were all was already plundered, leading to the destruction of the Grande Armée.
