The article discusses the military art of the command structure of the Imperial Russian army during the Caucasian war in the Black sea coastline. The article is paid attention to the amphibious operations at the mouth of the Psezuapse river, held in 1839-1840. The materials for the preparation are the archival documents of achival department of Sochi administration. The methodological basis of the research are the principles of objectivity and historicism, suggesting an unbiased approach to the analysis of the studied problems, a critical attitude to the sources, making judgements as a result of the analysis of a set of facts, as well as the display of phenomena in the development and the context of the historical situation. The author comes to the conclusion that during the landing operations at the mouth of the Psezuapse river has been widely applied to military art: a misleading the enemy about the place of landing, the use of boats in the mouth of the river, etc., which helped to keep the personnel of the Russian army. These operations have become the most bloodless during the confrontation on the black sea coastline.
