9781108023979: The Invasion of the Crimea: Its Origin and an Account of its Progress Down to the Death of Lord Raglan (Cambridge Library Collection - Naval and Military History) (Volume 7)

Alexander William Kinglake (1809-91) was a travel writer and historian. He witnessed the battle of the Alma and the Charge of the Light Brigade, and became well acquainted with the British commander, Lord Raglan. This work was commissioned by Lady Raglan to repair her husband's reputation, and Kinglake was given access to Raglan's papers, and to private and confidential state records. The eight volumes were published between 1863 and 1887. They were extremely successful commercially, but received mixed critical reviews, owing to the bias shown by the author, and serious questions were raised about his use of the sources to which he was given exclusive access. However, the breadth of his research, corresponding with or interviewing participants in the war, and use of French, Turkish and Russian sources as well as British, gives lasting value to the work. Volume 7 continues the account of the siege of Sebastopol.

Book Description:

Kinglake's Invasion of the Crimea was commissioned by Lady Raglan to counter criticisms of her husband. First published between 1863 and 1887, it was much criticised for its bias. However, it is still a valuable source, as Kinglake was given access to Raglan's papers, and to many confidential state documents.
