The Forts of Sevastopol

Postby K.V.K » 15 Sep 2007 10:40

Hi Guys
I am making research on the campaign of the Crimea (October 41/July 42) and I am looking for a map or a plan with the site of the Forts of Sevastopol (Maxime Gorky, Staline, Molotov, Siberia, White Cliff ....)
Best regards, olivier

The map below would be some help in understanding locations of Soviet howitzers.

Just to tell you there were no "forts" with such names as you cited.
They were German names.
So called "Maxim Gorkiy" forts were coastal batteries No. 30 & 35.
Even have no ideas what German meant under other names

Alex

What they called fort "Molotov" was the command post of the aniarcraft artillery, and fort "Stalin" - the 365th Antiaircraft Battery. The other "forts" AFAIR were for the most part the field fortifications built in the times of the Crimean War.
