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.
