Crimean War (18531856) (History of Wars 25)
Кримската война (1853—1856)
Language: Bulgarian


   Russia entered the Crimean War with the clear intention of defeating the Ottoman Empire and conquering vast territories. Emperor Nicholas I is convinced that he will not encounter problems, but he remains deceived in his expectations. A coalition was formed against the Russians with the participation of England, France, Piedmont, and later with other Western European countries. Memorable battles were fought on the battlefields, and the considerable intensity and high number of casualties resulted from the modern weapons and technological innovations used since the mid-19th century. Thus, the Crimean War actually became the first industrial war, in which the various achievements in the field of armaments, logistics, medicine, etc., were tested. The war has long-term consequences  it creates new dynamics in the Balkan Peninsula, reshapes the international system of alliances, and it determines the main political processes that precede the catastrophic global military conflicts of the next century.
