The letters of the young Scottish officer William Allan offer an insight into the daily lives of the 41st (The Welch) Regiment during the Crimean War (1854-6). Supplemented in this edition with a connecting narrative and letters written by other officers, they reveal vividly the effects of severe weather, enemy actions, ill-health and the incompetence of those in authority. An appendix lists all the men who served with the 41st Regiment in the Crimea campaign.
