Mikhail Illarionovich Kutuzov (1745-1813) - a Russian army commander, field-marshal-General. A disciple of Alexander Suvorov, he fought in the 18th-century Russian-Turkish wars. He won his spurs when he took by storm the Turkish fortress Izmail and became a national hero when as the commander-in-chief of the Russian army he fought the French army at Borodino near Moscow in 1812, and later forced Napoleon and his troops to flee and suffer heavy losses on the River Berezina.
