Crafted meticulously from private letters and diaries, newspaper reports and War Office correspondence, The Reason Why combines a compelling examination of the personalities at the heart of the disaster – brothers-in-law and sworn enemies Lords Lucan and Cardigan – with a stringent analysis of the fatal assault itself. The binding is inspired by the colours of Lord Cardigan’s 11th Hussars, nicknamed 'the Cherry Pickers' for their impeccable red trousers. Crimea was the first war to be photographed by war correspondents, and this edition features iconic photographs by Roger Fenton, alongside painted portraits and contemporary cartoons
