28mm World War II WargamingSoviet Naval Brigade

With much of the Soviet Baltic and Black Sea Fleets stuck in harbour by the German advance, many of the sailors moved ashore and served as desperately needed riflemen. They quickly became known as the ‘black death’ due to their distinctive black or dark blue naval uniforms - with caps and striped shirts.

In total, about 350,000 Red Navy sailors fought on land during the Great Patriotic War. They won a reputation for tenacity and daring both in defensive fighting and in coastal landing operations on the Baltic and Black seas.
