EYEWITNESS IN THE C**M** The Crimean War Letters of Lieutenant Colonel George Frederick Dallas


Through these letters we relive the terrible perils of combat and siege warfare: the author s almost miraculous escape from serious injury, whilst continually witnessing his comrades slaughter; the monotony of being entrenched in Sebastopol; the utter confusion surrounding instructions to attack; the mistakes at Inkermann and the Redan; the wearying cold.Supplemented by the editor s excellent footnotes and detailed biographical index, this is a revealing and intimate history of all those involved in the Crimean War.
