Crimean War - A Most Desperate Undertaking Film Poster


Military History Channel documentary that revisits the Crimean War, a conflict that raged from 1853 to 1856 and took many British lives. The seeds of the conflict lay in antagonism between Russia and the Ottoman Empire but when war broke out, Britain and France were quick to ally themselves with Turkey and sent troops to Crimea to fight against the Russians. The British war effort was riddled with mistakes and misunderstandings, including the infamous Charge of the Light Brigade.
