Crimean War at Sea

Something for the long ferry journey home tomorrow. I know a bit about this, having read a few general history books on the Crimean War, but I'm sure there's a lot more to learn. I'm particularly interested in the naval war in the Baltic as I can see this fitting in very well with my 1864 project, and Tumbling Dice do some lovely transitional steam models too. It is probably going to be a story of blockades and shore bombardments, with the occasional clash between gunboats and patrol vessels, but still with some potential for a 'what if?' scenario or two.


  1. It does sound an interesting read Jim; have a safe trip home

  2. I have the ebook version and there is lots of potential there.

  3. Sounds like a good read. I think there's plenty of potential for a naval campaign in the Baltic Sea based on Admiral Napier's fleet.
