Published on November 1, 2020 by

For many years the ‘Battlefield’ series has led the way in World War II documentary programming, establishing itself as a firm favourite with generations of viewers from around the world.

The Battle for the Crimea was an eight-month-long campaign by Axis forces to conquer the Crimea Peninsula and was the scene of some of the bloodiest battles on the Eastern Front during World War II. The German, Romanian, and defending Soviet troops suffered heavy casualties as the Axis forces tried to advance through the Isthmus of Perekop linking the Crimean peninsula to the mainland at Perekop, from summer of 1941 through to the first half of 1942.
