Default My trip to Taman

For 3 weeks I've been in southern Russia, Krasnodarskij Kraj (region), Anapa (the town I stayed at) and I had the opportunity to visit the Taman peninsula where the Wehrmacht entered and later left what promised to be the connection to the oil fields at Baku and other locations nearby.
I found a Wehrmacht coastal bunker and visited the construction site of the new railway and road bridge that will link Taman to the Crimea in the west; length 19 km, estimated opening at the end of 2017 (which I seriously doubt ...)

In the following posts I'll add pics

Default opinion

Regarding the 4th picture the Wehrmacht encountered geographical conditions similar to Omaha with a rather narrow beach and a steep cliff behind.
Of course, no 'Atlantikwall', the sea is not close as harsh as the Channel waters.

I shall take some research on how strong Russian defense was ain 1941.
