The Trebizond Campaign, also known as the Battle of Trebizond was a series of brilliant Russian naval and land operations that resulted in the capture of Trabzon. It was the logistical step after the Erzerum Campaign. Operations began on February 5 and concluded when the Ottoman troops abandoned Trabzon on the night of April 15, 1916.[1]

Effect on Armenians

Prior to World War I, the vibrant Armenian community of Trabzon numbered 30,000.[2] In 1915, during the Armenian Genocide, they were massacred and deported.[2] After the Russian capture of Trabzon, some 500 surviving Armenians were able to return,[2] as well as Armenian monks of the Kaymakli Monastery.[3]
