As part of my project, I have been compiling a diary of events in or directly related to operations in the Black Sea. I was wondering if this has already been done somewhere or if you would like to see it and/or add to this diary.

At the moment it is simply a table of date- place-event descrition but this can be modified as necessary if desired.

Cheers

Please, post your diary here. I am sure people will complete, check and correct (if necessary) the information in it.

Hi Tas,

After the war the Americans translated the War Diary German Admiral Black Sea into English, because it was possible during the Cold War that their fleet might have to operate against the Red Fleet in the Black Sea. There is a typed, month-by-month copy of it in the Imperial War Museum Reading Room in London and it must be more widely available in the USA.

Cheers,

Sid.

I read with interest the article added by Victor Nitu in September 2005, called "The Action 60,000".
My grandfather was one of the many saved in April 1944 by transportation to Romania, over Black Sea.

Now I am glad to add a little bit of information, maybe not known, maybe forgotten: most of the "Soviet volunteers" referred by Victor were of Tartar nationality. The Tartars had a long history of animosity with the Russians, rooted in early Middle Ages, and continued to modern times. Most recently, the Bolsheviks plundered their gold. My grandfather bought from one Tartar a silver ring, having on it a little map of Crimea.
To these Tartars were given German uniforms, and only the weapon sign was different.
After the war, Stalin punished their loyalty toward the Axis and removed the survivors (whole civilian population) out of Crimea. After 800 years of inhabiting that land, there is no trace left from the Tartars of Crimea. Today the locals are mostly Russians, and an Ukrainean minority.
