Written by Laurence Oliphant – a man who managed to be present at many of the world events occurring at this time in history – this book describes his travels through Russia in the period leading up to the Crimean War. This being the fourth edition, it contains his comments, added in hindsight, as the allied fleets gathered in the Black Sea just before war was declared by Britain.
