The Metal Toy Soldiers of Wm. Hocker, Proprietor


We here recall the significant events of the only Victorian campaign to be fought on European soil. In 1854 a Russian threat to interfere in the affairs of Turkey leads Britain, France and Italy to initiate a punitive attack on the Russian Black Sea Port of Sevastapol. The Russians attempt to stop the invasion in battles at the Alma River, Balaclava Heights and Inkerman but then retreat into the port. The allied siege kills, from cold and disease, many times the number of dead from numerous assaults. The Russians finally desert the town and the allies sail for home. The British Army, incompetently led, poorly supplied and inappropriately equipped faces reorganization.
