After recent discussion about Kinglake at the Crimean War Yahoo!Group, I thought I would start something here. From my point of view (naval) I find Kinglake almost a complete waste of time. Of course Kinglake is really about Raglan - not the war as a whole, so anything about the navies in Kinglake comes through the 'Raglan filter'. Any comments?

Matthew (matthewpizzo) | 1 comments I noticed that a university press is coming out with the complete Kinglake in softcover for $300. Kind of an odd time to release this and for such an expensive amount. I would love to find the original first edition for free as a download for Kindle or Nook. I would agree with your comments though. I guess he needed to make sure his patron (Mrs Raglan) was happy with his work.
