Modernity in War - the Crimea

4-week lecture course exploring the Crimean War

The Crimean War 1853-56 is often described as the first modern war, as it introduced so many modern elements from war reportage to nursing techniques and the tactical use of railways. The war was fought between Russia and the unlikely alliance of Britain, France, the Kingdom of Sardinia and the Ottoman Empire. To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the end of the war this course explores its historical, political and social context from different perspectives. It includes special access to rare manuscripts and maps. The course runs for 4 weeks on Thursdays from 5 - 26 October 2006.
