About this product
- DescriptionThis book is a revisionist narrative account of the Crimean War (1854-56). It begins by claiming that after the Crimean War the British Government kept secret the real objectives of the War and the reasons for its failure. Documents revealing the truth were released without publicity over fifty years later, by which time historians had fabricated a false account which is still widely believed today. This false history minimised the importance of the War, ascribed its outbreak to mistakes by discredited politicians, and reassured Victorian public opinion that Britain had t suffered from the indecisive outcome. There has been little interest in the Crimean War from modern academic historians; they may have been put off by the early portrayal of the war as a historically irrelevant mistake. The author believes this is why much original source material has t been consulted since it became available in the early 1900s.
