"In war there is no second prize for the runner-up."

The Battle of Sevastopol was fought from October 30th, 1941 to July 4th, 1942 between German forces and the USSR over the main Soviet naval base on the Black Sea during World War II. It is notable in the way that the Germans used many of their heavy (200-800mm range) mortars in the battle.
The German 11th Army, commanded by Erich von Manstein, besieged Sevastopol. At the time of the final assault in June 1942 the army consisted of 9 German infantry divisions (including 2 received during the battle) in two corps, and two Romanian rifle corps, plus various supporting elements including 150 tanks, several hundred aircraft, and one of the heaviest concentrations of artillery fielded by the Wehrmacht.
This 4-piece figure set consists of two German Gebirgsjager from the 101st Mountain Division and two Russian soldiers from the 9th Mountain Division. Now in stock!
