Description

The Crimean War is one of the most compelling subjects in British history. The story of Florence Nightingale, "the Lady with the Lamp", the heroic reporting of William Russell, "The Times" intrepid correspondent, and the sonorous names of the battles are familiar from schooldays and ingrained deep within the British military consciousness. In this volume, Trevor Royle demonstrates how the Crimean War was a watershed in world history: coming between the defeat of Napoleon in 1815 and the opening shots of the First World War in 1914 it pointed the way to what mass warfare would be like for soldiers in the 20th century.
