Improved technology and communications allowed the Crimean War to be better reported than any previous conflict, not least through the work of photographic pioneer Roger Fenton, who produced over 300 portraits of soldiers and views of the peninsula in 1855. This history presents the conflict through these groundbreaking photographs and the lithographs of artist William Simpson as well as pictures from The Illustrated London News and paintings and illustrations from Russian periodicals of the day.
