"After initial military success the Allied armies of Britain and France faced disaster in the grim Crimean winter of 1855-56, trapped on the inhospitable Upland between Sebastopol and the sea. Their failure led to the fall of Lord Aberdeen's coalition government and the formation of a new ministry under Lord Palmerston. This is the first book-length account of that government's directions of the war and participation in the long and involved diplomatic negotiations eventually leading to a peace settlement."
