    • If you're a history nerd, you will love this book.

Instead she ended up square and center of it for the three days, helping care for the wounded in that farmhouse basement. Fascinating. Horrific. Scandalous. It's a super fast read. Bought…

    • Fanny was a quiet girl, but also a writer of considerable talent. Maligned by some of her contemporaries because she didn’t fit in with the Victorian image of what a ‘lady’ should be, she did things her way and wrote about them in a vivid, lively way, bringing the Crimean War to gut-wrenching life in a way no history book can. She was there for the duration, saw the Charge of the Light Brigade, walked through the ruins of Sebastopol…
