Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Battle of Bomarsund was fought by an Anglo-French task force against Russian defenses at Bomarsund during the Crimean War. After a week of fighting, the British stormed the "remaining" fort and at the end of the battle, the fort of Bomarsund was destroyed. Bomarsund is a 19th century fortress built in 1832 by Russia in Sund on the land Islands in the Baltic Sea. Three hundred Finnish grenadiers defending the fortress were captured and imprisoned in Lewes in the United Kingdom. They were later allowed to return to Finland, and they returned with a song telling about their battle and imprisonment, called the War of land (Finnish: Oolannin sota). The so-called Russian Memorial was erected in Lewes in 1877 to honour those who died in captivity. In the Treaty of Paris 1856, the entire land Islands were demilitarized, which is a status that has been preserved until this day. The Bomarsund Bridge connects Bomarsund to the Pr st island.show more
