What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This ambitious and clever study illuminates the often-forgotten global aspects of the Crimean War. Andrew Rath brings together a tremendous amount of primary source material in eight languages to re-frame this struggle within the story of European empire and modernization in the mid-19th century. This is fine argument for the continued dynamism of military and diplomatic history and may convince readers to re-think their understanding of this important 19th century conflict.” (Society for Military History (SMH))
