    By: Cecil Woodham-Smith

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    A story of astonishing courage and honour, of stupidity, blood and death, and terrible waste.Nothing in British campaign history has ever equalled the tragic fare that was the 'Charge of the Light Brigade'. In this fascinating study, Cecil Woodham-Smith shows that responsibilty for the disastrous mismanagement of the affair rested with the Earls of Cardigan and Lucan - brothers-in-law and sworn enemies for more than thirty years.In revealing the combination of pride and obstinacy that was to prove so fatal, Mrs Weedham-Smith paints a brilliant portrait of a vanished world, in which heroism and military glory guaranteed an immortality impossible in a more cynical age.
