The Azoff Campaign 1855

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Slight crease line upper right corner of face. Otherwise unread copy excellent condition. This work contains details about the Sea of Azoff campaign in 1855 in the war against Russia. It includes: medal rolls, by ship and an alphabetical list of recipients; a list of honours and awards; a chronology of operations, 1855; copies of letters and dispatches; an appendix listing military units at Kertch; and a detailed index.;Much has been forgotten about the 1854-1856 war against Russia, most histories concentrating on the campaign fought on the Crimea Peninsula, and the effects of British failures on the long-suffering British soldier in the field or in the trenches before Sebastopol. However, not every aspect of this war was poorly organised and badly led. In the Sea of Azoff in the spring and summer of 1855, a highly successful naval campaign was launched against a major source of supplies and reinforcements. British and French warships struck at every vestige of Russian power along the coast of the Sea of Azoff. Except for Rostov and Azoff, no town, depot, building or fortification was immune from attack and Russian naval power ceased to exist almost overnight. Contrary to established images of the Russian war, here was a campaign which was well-planned, dynamically led and overwhelmingly successful.;The British authorities, significantly, issued the clasp "Azoff" to the medal for the Crimean War, thus acknowledging the services of those who waged the most successful operations against the Russians during the war of 1854-1856.
