Reason Whyby Cecil Woodham-Smith
Cecil Woodham-Smith delves into the extraordinary story of the disastrous defeat of Britain's Light Cavalry Brigade on September 20, 1854, at the battle of Balaclava in the Crimea. From scores of previously unpublished letters and official communiques, she has unearthed devastating evidence about why more than 500 men rode to certain death in a valley occupied on three sides by enemy Russian artillery.
