Publisher's Summary

Discover the remarkable history of the Crimean War...

The Crimean War was one of the bloodiest conflicts of the 19th century, but it is also one of the least remembered. More men died in the Crimean War than in the American Civil War which followed soon after, but while the Civil War has been the subject of countless books, articles, and movies, the Crimean War has been virtually ignored.

Part of the reason for this is that the causes of the Crimean War are not well understood. Just what made four empires go to war in the Black Sea in 1854? The outcome of the war was also partly responsible; it can be argued that the Crimean War changed nothing and that it is not at all clear why and for what half a million men died. Even the name by which this war is now known was not used at the time; until the 20th century, this war was known in Britain as the Russian War.

Yet the Crimean War is important for a number of reasons. Although it did not change the map of Europe and did not directly cause the fall of any of the combatants, it did indirectly shape the second half of the 19th century and the early years of the twentieth century in Europe. This war also introduced newspaper reporters and photographers who provided regular dispatches direct from the battlefield, something that became a feature of virtually every war which followed. The presence of these reporters gave the public some idea, almost for the first time, of what war was really like for the men who fought it.

Although the Crimean War did not fundamentally change the world, nothing would be quite the same after its conclusion. This is the story of the Crimean War.

the world's forgotten War

has a retired world history teacher I was impressed by the scope of the book about the Crimean war. though I never thought about the Crimean War it should have been part of the curriculum in world history. hearing of this major battle fought near the same time as the civil War and shaping history of Europe and beginning the modern warfare this war should have received more coverage in the history books. the narrator is very easy to listen to and is very professional. I recommend this performance to anyone who wants to learn have a very important event which shaped the history of Eastern Europe and the history of Russia and the Ottoman Empire and led up to major events of the world. this is a great performance.
