THE DEFENCE OF SEVASTOPOL 1941-1942

by Clayton Donnell 

In December 1941 the offensives of the German Army Groups North and Centre were stalled in the mud and cold of the Russian winter. But in the Crimea the German Eleventh Army encircled the vast fortress of Sevastopol, launching massive combined air, artillery and land attacks against the heavily defended positions. The forts and bunkers defending the city had to be taken one by one and casualties on both sides were severe. This brutal struggle went on for over six months.
