The British Army's involvement in the Crimean War of 1854-56 is often remembered only for the ill-advised "charge of the Light Brigade" during the battle of Sevastopol as memorialized in Tennyson's poem.

This book examines the uniforms of the various branches of the British Army involved in the conflict, including general officers and staff, artillery, infantry and the most colorful branch of all - the cavalry. Numerous illustrations, including rare contemporary photographs depict the army's uniforms in vivid detail.
