LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

London: Hale & Iremonger, 1970. 500 g; 208 pages, indexed, with bibliography and illustrated with a map and 12 pages of black-and-white photographs and reproductions of art works. Illustrated dustwrapper. The top edge of the text block is foxed, and there is a suggestion of offset tanning to front and rear free end pages. The body of the book is clean. In piecing together, from many sources, the story of Army wives in the Crimea, the author has had access to some hitherto unpublished letters and material. The major events of the war -- the Alma, Inkerman and balaclava -- are viewed as far as possible through the eyes of women witnesses, as also are the figures of the various commanders, lords Raglan and Luton, and the controversial Cardigan. The contrasting backgrounds from which these women emerged were the typical drawing rooms and the dismal barracks of the period. But in times of stress, without subservience on one side or condescension on the other, the best of those widely different social products were seen to be "sisters under their skins" in a more natural way than is envisaged by those who endorse the meaningless idea of a classless society." -- rear panel blurb. First Edition. Hardcover. Good/Very Good -- Price Clipped. Illus. by photographic and Drawings. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. history -- Crimea.
