A map of the Crimea showing the Russian operations in 1736-7. Russo-Turkish War (1735-9). Oriented with north to top (cardinal points). This map is derived from RCIN 728001.a and shows the same information.

This map, and an accompanying larger-scale map of the Crimea with explanatory text (see RCINs 728001.b-d.) was compiled from manuscripts by the military cartographer Carl von Frauendorff, whose name appears on the larger-scale map. The march of the Russian army under the command of Field Marshal Burkhard Christoph von Munnich (1683-1767) is shown from the crossing of the Dnieper at Wlassowka (Vlasovka, Ukraine 49°06'54"N 33°16'53"E) to Ochakov (46°36'46"N 31°32'59"E), which his army took by storm on 2 July 1737. The rectangles which are used to represent the army are coloured in red and dark blue. Munnich's marches to and from the Crimea in 1736 are shown, together with the siege of Kinburn (on Kinburn Spit 46°34'0"N 31°31'00"E) by Russian troops begun on 23 July and other operational movements of the armies during 1736-7.
