The Crimean War (Essential Histories)

The Crimean War (Essential Histories) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This bitter war between Russia and Turkey, aided by Britain and France, was the setting for the stuff of legends. This book details the gallant yet suicidal Charge of the Light Brigade, now immortalised in film: in the words of Tennyson, 'Into the Valley of Death rode the Six Hundred'. It relates the reports made by the first real war correspondant, William Russell of the London Times - reports which served only to highlight the army's problems - and memorialises the heroic deeds of Florence Nightingale, who struggled to save young men from the most formidable enemy in the Crimean War: not the Russians, but cholera.

Synopsis:

The bitter war between Russia and Turkey is recorded here. It details the gallant yet suicidal Charge of the Light Brigade and relates the reports made by the first war correspondant, William Russell. It also deals with the heroism of Florence Nightingale.
