2 DVD SET: THE CRIMEAN WAR - A CLASH OF EMPIRES

In the years between 1854 and 1856, Britain fought its only European war between the end of the Napoleonic conflict and the opening of the Great War in 1914.  Although eventually victorious, this was a hard war fought with little skill and filled with great loss.  Indeed, the Crimean War became infamously known for military and logistical incompetence, perhaps best epitomised  by the near annihilation of the British Light Brigade. This documentary explains in depth the conflict, which originated as a quarrel between Russian Orthodox monks and French Catholics over who had precedence at Jerusalem's and Nazareth's holy sights.


DVD-R is in English with no subtitles.  Approx.  204 mins.  Digital quality (see film sample below).
