Monument to the Unknown Sailor, Novorossiysk, Russia

In 2013/14, I completed an MA in Military History and Strategic Studies at Maynooth University. My thesis was on the campaign in the Kuban. The thesis can be found here.

Novorossiysk’s Memorial to the Unknown Sailor is a simple statue that faces out to sea from the eastern end of the seafront promenade. The monument, including the plinth, stands 7 metres tall. It was created by the sculptor O. Kolomeytsev and was unveiled in 1961.
