This is a wonderful book! It is an amazing record of the Crimea and Mutineer Wars (1850-1870) from someone who was there - I suspect the fact he survived is what drove him to publish the books. I would love to have met this man, his humanity and balanced point of view given such horror, is both humbling and inspirational, note that this is how I feel in reading the thoughts of a man who died over 100 years ago.
