The Charge Of The Light Brigade Review


OK
Dramatazation of Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem about the ill-fated Light Brigade, 600 soldiers during the Crimean War (digested version: 1854-56, England and Turkey vs. Russia, best known for the Light Brigade but most significant for the actions of nurse Florence Nightengale).
