The siege of Sebastopol. Illustration by Richard Hook

9 October marks the anniversary of the beginning of the siege of Sebastopol in 1854. During the Crimean War, the city (sometimes known as Sevastopol) was surrounded by Allied (British, French and Turkish) troops and a long siege ensued. The British bombardment of the city finally paid off and an all-out assault in August 1855 took the city.
