1 Palmer, Alan. THE BANNER OF BATTLE: THE STORY OF THE CRIMEAN WAR.
London Weidenfeld and Nicolson 1987 0297790420 / 9780297790426 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good 
289 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w photographs, reproductions. "(P)uts the myths and preconceptions about The Charge of the Light Brigade, Florence Nightingale, the war guilt of Stratford de Redcliffe, the rivalry between Lord Cardigan and Lord Lucan and the patriotic fervour of the English into perspective. Military and naval events are woven into the context of Great Power politics and diplomacy. The Crimean War, often viewed simply as a dramatic incident in the Eastern Question, emerges as a decisive campaign which lowered the stature of both defeated Russia and non-belligerent Austria, thereby changing the power structure of Europe. (This) is the first comprehensive interpretation of the subject stressing the European and Baltic angles, and so bringing the Crimean War clearly and astutely into focus." Page edges browning lightly. Dust jacket has minor edgewear, light edge wrinkling, light browning to spine. 
Price: 20.00 USD
