Black Sea Black Death Battle for Mt. Markotha

The mission of the 47th Army was to push out of the mountains and into the town of Novorossisk to link up with the Soviet Naval Landings. To do this the 318th mountain Rifle Division had to take Mt Markotha and the Red October Cement factory located on the bay of Novorossisk outside the town. There is also a key mountain pass just behind Mt. Markotha the Reds needed to capture. The pics show the Soviets pushing up the mountain valley while Rumanian and German forces delay them. Also a vicious fight took place to capture Mt. Markotha.

We did a large Convention game at fallin with 30 players called Black Sea / Black Death. The game centered around the town of Novorossisk on the Black Sea, February 1943. Soviet forces of the 47th Army engage Elements of the German 73rd Division on the southern end of the Taman Peninsula. This was a three table event, the fight for the mountains east of Novorossisk, The coastal fights and the Black Sea Fleet and airborne attempts to land and unhinge the main German defenses.

Part one is the Soviet Naval Brigades and an indpendent Tank Brigades attack off the beaches into the Romanian defenses. Soviet Marine Paratroopers were landed behind the beachhead and link up was attempted.
