Crimea Drive Outflanks Don

Heavy German artillery at Kerch, the eastern harbor of the peninsula, could dominate the narrow straits and cut off whatever units of the Soviet Black Sea fleet might be left in the Sea of Azov.

Air patrols could give the Germans a powerful screen for an attempted crossing to the Caucasian mainland.
