Description

 In The Reason Why, Cecil Woodham-Smith shows that responsibility for the fatal mismanagement of the affair rested with the Earls of Cardigan and Lucan, brothers-in-law and sworn enemies for more than thirty years. Nothing in British campaign history has ever equaled the tragic farce that was the Charge of the Light Brigade. 

In revealing the combination of pride and obstinacy that was to prove so fatal, the author gives us a picture of a vanished world, in which heroism and military glory guaranteed immortality impossible in a more cynical age

The Reason Why is an excellent addition to your vintage  Crimean War collection or your home library.
