A Culinary Campaignby Alexis Soyer, Michael Barthorp, John Ray
Soyer's brilliant memoir, published in 1856 and never since reprinted. A vivid account of the Crimean War and of Soyer's inventions and recipes for feeding armies in the field. He was as important in the Crimea as Florence Nightingale, for his influence on the reform of army feeding enabled wounded soldiers to survive. A modified version of the Soyer stove was still in use in the Gulf War. Introductions by Elizabeth Ray and military historian Michael Barthorp.

I never received this book. On two occasions, you shipped me another book from the same publisher about housekeeping. I got a credit notation from you on the first book I returned. The second time I returned thie wrong book, I heard nothing. I buy a lot from BN, at least, by my standsrds, and this is the first time you have totally ignored a mistake you made and failed to make it right.
