The Crimean War was the most destructive armed conflict of the Victorian era. It is remembered for the unreasoning courage of the Charge of the Light Brigade, for the precise volleys of the Thin Red Line and the impossible assaults upon Sevastopols Redan. It also demonstrated the inefficiency and ineffectiveness of the British military system based on privilege and purchase.
