"Captain Louis Nolan delivered the order that started one of the most famous blunders in all military history -- the charge of the Light Brigade. Nolan's conduct and the charge itself have been the subject of intense, sometimes bitter debate ever since ... Yet there has been no recent biography of Nolan. He remains an ambiguous, controversial figure to this day. In this ... study, David Buttery reassesses Nolan the man and looks at his entire career. There was much more to Louis Nolan than his fatal role in the charge ... It offers the reader an inside view of the most notorious episode of that war, the charge at Balaklava on 25 October 1854"--Jacket.
