The British and French expeditionary force landed on the beaches of Calamita Bay, on the south-west coast of the Crimean Peninsula, in September 1854. The campaign that followed would create such iconic figures as Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole, and memorable images such as the Thin Red Line of the 93rd at the Battle of Balaclava and the Charge of the Light Brigade. Reporting it all was William Howard Russell, special correspondent of The Times of London. Russell's accounts, transmitted back by electric telegraph, shocked the public and made him world famous. This book reprints Russell's dispatches from the Alma, Sevastopol, Balaclava and Inkerman, and from the field hospitals which so shocked Florence Nightingale.
