    The recent inventions of the telegraph and photography allowed the Crimean War (1853-1856) to be reported as no conflict had been before. William H Russell reported its day-to-day progress for The Times, alerting the public to the horrors of the war and the incompetence of some of the leaders. This book presents Russell's influential coverage of battles including Alma, Sevastopol, Inkerman and Balaclava.
