SS 4 - The Crimean War Overview

Using the Crimean War handout by Wawro, pages 51-57 in the grey books and 52-57 in the blue books, summarise and make notes on the following.

1/ Who fought the Crimean War and why did it start?

2/ Summarise the main developments in weaponry in this period

3/ Summarise the main technological developments in the period

4/ How did the developments in these areas affect the way the war was fought and its outcome?

5/ In what ways did the developments in weaponry and technology affect the nature of war away from the battlefield?

Don't worry about a detailed summary of the siege of Sebastopol or the battle of Balaklava - we will look at these in more detail when we come back after half term.
