William Morris was in the front rank during the Charge of the Light Brigade. He was one of the first horsemen to reach the Russian guns. This is his story. M.J. Trows vivid biography of this typical Victorian soldier gives a fascinating insight into the officer class that fought the Crimean War. In recording Morriss experiences during a notorious campaign, the author reveals much about the hidebound character of the British army of that era.

The portraits of Morriss fellow officers and commanders - men like Nolan, Raglan and Lucan - are telling, as is the contrast between Morris and his incompetent superior Cardigan. The author meticulously recreates Morriss life and, through him, the lives of a generation of professional British soldiers. returncharacterreturncharacter returncharacterreturncharacter REVIEWS returncharacterreturncharacterPresents an intriguing insight into the English officer corps of the Victorian Army, with all of its idiosyncrasies...
