In September 1854, the armies of Britain, France and Turkey invaded the Crimean peninsular with the aim of teaching expansionist Russia a military lesson by quickly capturing the naval port of... More > Sevastopol. The landings at Kalamita Bay went well and the Allied army was victorious over the Russians at the Battle of the Alma on the road to Sevastopol. However, the defeated and demoralised Russian army was not pursued and allied plans began to unravel.

Key to this new strategy was the seizure of the port of Balaklava. This publication gives an account of the progress of the first two weeks of the invasion of the Crimea from the landings to the capture of Balaklava. Forty-eight maps, photographs and pictures illustrating important locations and events are included. Almost all are in colour.

More > Urgent plans were created to speed them to the Scutari field hospital in Constantinople. With soldiers being in short supply due to the current war effort, ten men of the Queen's Edinburgh Militia were ordered to meet the almost all female party at Marseille and ensure their safe arrival.
