21st Century Siege of Sevastopol Ends
I've been reading about General von Manstein's two sieges of Sevastopol in 1941-2 for the past few weeks. My reading has coincidentally been sandwiched by modern news from Ukraine and the Crimea. Today, the latest siege of Sevastopol looks to be ending as the Ukrainian government is evacuating its forces from the Crimea.
