The Crimean War is famous for four key engagements: Inkerman, Alma, Balaclava and the seige of Sebastopol. All typified the incompetence of the British High Command redeemed by the indomitable courage of the British soldier. "C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas la guerre," remarked the French general Bosquet as the Light Brigade suicidally charged the Russian guns at Balaclava. This book is based on unpublished material, from single letters by barely literate private soliders to the voluminous correspondence of commander-in-chief Lord Raglan. The whole experience of fighting in the Crimea is captured here: the thrill of combat, the men's impressions of their allies - French, Turkish and Sardinian, the horors of their first winter in the Crimea, the scandalously inadequate medical arrangements and the impact made by Florence Nightingale.
