Description: Aimable-Jean-Jacques Pélissier, 1st Duc de Malakoff (1794 –1864), was a Marshal of France. In 1855 he succeeded Marshal Canrobert as commander-in-chief of the French forces before the Siege of Sevastopo, a command marked by relentless pressure of the enemy and unalterable determination to conduct the campaign without interference from Paris. His perseverance was crowned with success in the storming of the Tower of Malakoff which ended the Siege of Sebastopol, crowning the Anglo-French Crimean War against Russia with victory.
