    DescriptionDuring the Crimean War, for the first time, newspaper correspondents were able to provide the public with eye-witness accounts of the scenes of conflict. This book combines such descriptions from "The Times" of London with a discussion of the war, based on historical scholarship. In addition to the famous accounts submitted by William Howard Russell, all areas of the Black Sea theatre are covered, including the Sea of Azov, the Caucasus and Bulgaria, along with other major theatre of war, the Baltic, where the Admiral and Commander-in-Chief sometimes acted as "Times" correspondent. This marks a return to the contemporary perception of the war, where the whole conflict was observed, rather than the subsequent concentration on the heroism, incompetence and recovery on the few square miles of the Crimean Uplands that have come to dominate the modern image of the war.
