Russian fleet bottled up in its principal black sea ports, a combined British, Turkish, French forced landed in Crimea north of its target, Sevastopol. Their plan went badly, the ranks of men and horses were decimated by disease and starvation. The supply, transport, and medical arrangements broke down.
