Designed to be posted on bulletin boards on ships and on bases. This celebratory edition is headlined "Novorossiysk is Ours!"

The top photo shows a panorama of the liberated city while the photos below show Soviet naval infantry, torpedo boats in action and the fireworks in Moscow celebrating this important victory. Also presented are two naval officers awarded with the Title of Hero of the Soviet Union for fighting at Novorossiysk.

The poster measures 24 " x 22". Very good to excellent condition. There are a few holes down the left hand side where the poster was probably bound together with others in the series - the holes are small and do not detract. There is very minor amount of damage in two small areas at the bottom margin, not affecting the image and almost unnoticeable. There are also one or two light folds that appear to have been flattened out a long time ago. The poster has been shrink wrapped on to what appears to be acid free cardboard backing. Note that when we ship it, we will send it "sandwiched" between two sturdy pieces of cardboard of appropriate side, carefully sealed on the edges to prevent any water damage. The poster will be ready for display when you receive it!

Novorossiysk was an important seaport and naval base on the doorstep to the Caucasus. Much of the city was captured by the Germans during their sweeping southern offensive in the summer of 1942, but its southeastern outskirts marked the limit of Axis advance along the shore of the Black Sea. Novorossiysk then saw bitter fighting for many months with neither side being able to make a decisive breakthrough or regain full use of its port. For much of 1943, the city served as the southern anchor of the Nazi defensive "Blue Line" on the Taman Peninsula. Its liberation in October 1943 was deemed a major success for the Red Army and Navy, and brought the Soviet troops to the doorsteps of the Crimea.
