Founded by Catherine the Great, the maritime city of Sevastopol has been fought over for centuries. Twice the city has faced complete obliteration, yet twice it has risen, phoenix-like, from the ashes. Here retired general Mungo Melvin explores how Sevastopol became the crucible of conflict over three major engagements—the Crimean War, the Russian Civil War, and World War II—witnessing the death and destruction of countless armies, yet creating the legend of an indomitable "spirit of Sevastopol." By weaving together interviews, detailed operational reports, and battle analysis, Melvin creates a rich tapestry of Russian history.
