Not many men – aside from Lord Cardigan himself – lived to complete the charge of the Light Brigade and then return to tell the tale, but William Morris did so. In this biography of a very Victorian soldier, M.J. Trow offers a fascinating portrait of a cavalry officer in an age when his type were already becoming a historical anachronism. Trow’s book not only portrays Morris himself and his comrades, but other prominant personalities of the Crimean campaign ; including the feuding and spectacularly incompetent aristocratic commanders : Lords Raglan, Lucan and Cardigan
Pocket Hercules Captain Morris And The Charge Of The Light Brigade
