As I do know the Crimea and have been interested in this campaign since the Year Dot I thought I'd add a quick review. The main defect of the book is a rather pedestrian style and a lack of vivid description. It is pretty thorough and I do not detect more than two or three invalid assertions and a few factual slips, which is good going in a book of this type. If wanting a book on this subject, which has indeed been somewhat neglected until recently, get this rather than the distinctly inferior and badly edited one written by Hans Seidler and published by Pen & Sword.
