DESPATCHES FROM THE FRONT: BRITISH BATTLES OF THE CRIMEA WARS 1854-1856

£25.00 £3.99

The Crimean War was Britain’s most costly and destructive conflict of the Victorian era. Best known for the Charge of the Light Brigade, the whole campaign was conducted with the same courageous ineptitude as that futile endeavour. In these original despatches, written by both the Army commanders and the much more successful Admirals, we read of the hard fought battles of the Alma, Balaklava and Inkerman, the siege of Sevastopol, and the triumphs of the Navy in the Baltic.
