On March 28, 1854, Queen Victoria’s government announced that Britain had declared war on Russia.  Few conflicts have provoked as much debate as The Crimean War, with details right down to the name and date of it remaining discussion points for historians. This illustrated history gives a unique and exciting pictorial insight into the war, presenting illustrations from one of the early pioneers of photography Roger Fenton alongside artist William Simpson, the Russian painters Timms and Rubio, and artists from The Illustrated London News and Punch.
