The Boer War And Mafeking: Ladysmith 1900

The Boer War And Mafeking: Ladysmith 1900


    The British Army arrived in the Crimea in 1854, ill-equipped to fight a war in the depths of a Russian winter. The book is a collection of extracts from government papers published in 1855 and 1856. Their selection provides a snapshot of events at that time. In particular, they focus on the terrible disaster that was the Charge of the Light Brigade, and the inadequate provisions that were made for the care of the sick and wounded. The documents relating to the hospitals at Scutari include evidence from Florence Nightingale herself.
