The battle for the Crimea in 1941 - 1942 did not have a significant influence on the process of Great Patriotic War. However, the methods and ways of combat, troops structure, tactics used by the opposing parties turned out to be important in conduction of more global offensive operations in the vicinity of Kharkov and Stalingrad. And though the lessons of the Crimea were not taken into proper account in the May offensive of the South-Western Front which resulted in its defeat, during the battle of Stalingrad the Soviet High Command having the experience of previous failures won a military and intellectual victory over Wehrmacht.
This books gives a detailed account on the combat at Perekop in September-October 1941 for the first time, and also provides an analyses to the failure of Soviet troops in the Northern Crimea in March-May 1942 which resulted in the catastrophe at Kerch and complete collapse of the Crimean Front. Using archive and other historical materials, the authors of this book tried to contribute into the description of those events.
