Into The Valley Of Death Rode The Six Hundred". Cecil Woodham~Smith tells the extraordinary story behind one of the most fantastic blunders in military history ~ the terrible and tragic charge of the famous Light Brigade during the Crimean War. From a mass of unpublished papers, she has unearthed devastating evidence as to why more than five hundred men met death in a charge that has since become immortal. The key to the mystery lies far back in English tradition ~ in the system of the British Army at the time and in the lives and personalities of two unusual men, Lord Cardigan and Lord Lucan. It was Lord Lucan who ordered the now legendary charge and Lord Cardigan who led it. Both were men of noble birth ~ wealthy, handsome, egocentric, and ruthless. At a time when war was the trade of the aristocracy, these two, arrogant and obstinate, rose to high command in the cavalry. Cardigan soon became a cause celebre in England. Absolutely incapable of being civil to those under him, Cardigan's cruelty to his men earned for him the hatred of all of England. Lord Lucan was a superior soldier, but scarcely a more admirable personality. He valued human lives not at all and at the height of the Irish famine threw hundreds off his property there, razing their homes to the ground. It is these two men, brothers~in~law and hated enemies, who are at the center of Mrs. Woodham~Smith's fascinating story. Within them, and within the system that enabled them to rise to military power, rests the responsibilities for the catastrophe. Florence Nightingale attested to Mrs. Woodham~Smith's superb skill as a biographer. In The Reason Why she creates a remarkably full and rounded picture of the Crimean period in English history. Her research has been immense, and the manner in which she builds her story lends it great drama and force. The description of the actual Charge itself is unforgettable. The Reason Why has won unqualified praise from the British critics and was a Book Society Choice upon publication in England, Seller Inventory # 4222006

About this Item: Leo Cooper, London, 1996. Hard Back. Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. Wilkinson, Roni - Jacket Design (illustrator). First Edition. 285 Pages Indexed. Book with maroon boards is in brand new condition. Dust jacket is also brand new condition protected with a mylar Demco Polyfit since new. The charge of the Light Brigade! One of Britain's best known glorious disasters. This book shatters many long-held conceptions of how and why it happened, and who was to blame. For the first time in many years a former professional soldier has combined military expertise, detailed research of participants' accounts with a careful study of the actual ground. The result is a gripping and definitive book for the general reader and the military buff alike. The author introduces the Light Brigade on the start-line in Chapter 1. Then he goes back to follow it through the controversial events that brought it to that position moments before the bugle sounded. The reader rides with the Regiments down the valley, visits the Russian guns as they frantically fire from three sides, before limping painfully back up the valley with the survivors. The story switches skillfully from the strategic and tactical problems of the battlefield to what it was like for the trooper in the valley or a Russian gunner serving his cannon. Through the novel use of sketches the reader can, at every stage, look down on the battlefield from the same position as that used by the British commander-in-chief, Lord Raglan. He sees the situation as Raglan saw it when he gave each of his infamous four orders that led to the charge. The fourth order, that launched the Brigade down the valley of death, involved four horsemen of calamity. Raglan gave the order, Captain Nolan delivered it, Lord Lucan received it, and the Earl of Cardigan executed it. History has disagreed over the share of the blame. This book makes a masterly analysis of the probabilities and discusses factors previously overlooked. This book is probably the closest we will ever get to the truth about the charge of the Light Brigade which was immortalized in the poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson, published just six weeks after the October 25 1854 event. Cover Illustration: All That Was Left of Them by Richard Caton Woodville. Illustrated with 15 Maps, 7 Sketches, and 16 pages of black and white photographs. Contents in Four Parts: The Light Brigade, The Orders, The Charge, and The Consequences. Size: 6 1/4" x 9 1/2". Seller Inventory # 19948

About this Item: Barnes & Noble Books, New York, 1998. Hard Back. Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. Sarfati, James - Jacket Design (illustrator). First Barnes & Noble. 290 Pages Indexed. White boards with black cloth quarter-spine. Brand new gift quality book with dust jacket protected with Demco Polyfit mylar. This is the First Printing of the 1998 Barnes & Noble reprint of the original 1953 copyright. This book is a meticulously researched and accurate account of the motives and causes behind what must be described as one of the most staggering blunders in military history: the senseless, indefensible Charge of the Light Brigade. The author delves into the extraordinary story of the disastrous defeat of Britain's Light Cavalry Brigade on September 20, 1854, at the battle of Balaclava in the Crimea. From scores of previously unpublished letters and official communiques, she has unearthed devastating evidence about why more than 500 men rode to certain death in a valley occupied on three sides by enemy Russian artillery. The fault at the heart of the mystery lies in good part with the British army's "purchase system" -a system in which wealthy, inexperienced, even incompetent men could buy commissions and regimental commands, advancing ahead of better trained, more seasoned officers. This riveting book exposes two such men: Lord Lucan, who ordered the fateful charge, and Lord Cardigan, who led it. Both were of noble birth-rich, arrogant, and ruthless. Both bought their way up through the ranks despite their glaringly obvious flaws. Cardigan was so uncivil and contentious with his men that he earned their unmitigated hatred. And Lucan, an equally unworthy character, evicted hundreds of his tenant farmers during the Great Irish Famine, razing their homes. Woodham-Smith depicts how the shortcomings of these two men out- weighed all other difficulties and laid the groundwork for tragedy. She builds to a dramatic climax with a blow-by- blow account of the horrific last few minutes of the charge. Size: 6" x 8 1/2". Seller Inventory # 19947

Light Creasing on Front, Rear Covers, Spine; Front, Rear Covers, Spine Lightly Chipped; Spine Slightly Cocked; Edges Lightly Soiled; Slight Yellowing Due to Age. Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to do and die: Into the valley of Death Rode the six hundred. BOOK NUMBER: 1278. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Cecil Woodham-Smith, author of Florence Nightingale, The Reason Why, and The Great Hunger, was born a FitzGerald of a well-known Irish family. She is married to a London solicitor, and they have two married children and six grandchildren. She has an army background: her father, Colonel James FitzGerald, after retiring from the Indian Army, was Deputy Commissioner for Berar, while her mother's family includes General Sir Thomas Picton who served under Wellington and was killed at Waterloo. Through these connexions she first became interested in the work Miss Nightingale did for the Army in the Crimea and in India. Mrs Woodham-Smith says, "On coming down from Oxford I earned my living writing advertisements. After marriage I did free-lance work, mainly short stories, serials, and totally unsuccessful, plays. As soon as my children were more or less independent I began historical research." While working on the Crimean War for her book on Miss Nightingale she became interested in Lord Lucan and Lord Cardigan, the two remarkable personalities who are the main characters of The Reason Why. Her latest book, The Great Hunger (1962), deals with the great Irish famine of the eighteen-forties, and she is at present working on a two-volume biography of Queen Victoria.

"This curious story has never been told before - no biography of Lord Lucan, Lord Cardigan or Lord Raglan having, as yet, been written. It has emerged piece by piece from private letters and diaries, from dispatches and War Office correspondence, from law reports, from files of newspapers and privately printed pamphlets preserved in country houses." 293 pages, including Principal Sources & Index. With 5 illustrations including the frontispiece, with one map in the text and a fold-out map at rear. Expanded condition report/digital photo on request. Seller Inventory # 029528
