Founded by Catherine the Great, the maritime city of Sevastopol has been fought over for centuries. Crucial battles of the Crimean War were fought on the hills surrounding the city, and the memory of this stalwart defence inspired those who fruitlessly battled the Germans during World War II. Twice the city has faced complete obliteration yet twice it has risen, phoenix-like, from the ashes.
Written by award-winning historian Mungo Melvin, this book will be the first in any language to cover the full history of Russia's historic Crimean naval citadel, from its founding through to the current tensions that threaten the region.
