    Impressive. It’s all in Tolstoy’s literature.
    By the way, history repeats itself nowadays.

    The Russians showed those Turks who’s boss, until the greedy western capitalists came in and ruined everything.

    One advantage that the enemy had was that most of their line-of-battle ships were steam-powered and the Russian ships were not, so they could come and go as they pleased without depending on the wind. Witnesses said that the guns on the British and French vessels sounded like locomotives at full speed.
