CRIMEAN WAR AT SEA, THE: The Naval Campaigns Against Russia 1854-56
Too often, histories of the Crimean War in Russia 1854-56 focus narrowly on the land campaign, ignoring the wider war waged at sea by the British and French against the Russians. The Allied navies struck at Russian interests anywhere in the world where naval force could be brought to bear, and as a result waged campaigns in the Baltic, the Black Sea, the White Sea, on the Russian Pacific coast, and in the Sea of Azoff.
In this graphic and original study, Peter Duckers offers the first overall survey of these neglected, yet remarkably successful, naval campaigns. Allied warships ranged across Russian waters sinking shipping, disrupting trade, raiding ports, bombarding fortresses, destroying vast quantities of stores, and shelling coastal towns. The scale and intensity of the naval operations will astonish you.
