This two-disc set examines the Crimean War in fascinating detail.
This was a hard war, fought with little skill and filled with great loss. Indeed, the Crimean War became infamous for military and logistical incompetence, perhaps most aptly epitomised by the near annihilation of the British Light Brigade.
In this superb documentary, made to mark the the 150th anniversary of the "Clash of Empires", celebrated historian Thomas Vuaghan expertly tells the compelling story and reports on the lessons learned.
This two-disc set includes the acclaimed documentary Wellington's Last Parade: The Paths of Glory.
