Crimean War by Orlando-Figes


Recommended Posts

After having finished reading Robert Massie's massive work on Peter the Great, I took a break and read short ones: Feathermen, a not so clear if it is real story about the aftermat of an SAS operation in Oman, and Psychology of Money, I am now back to my Russian studies. I started reading this book on the Crimean War, another world against Russia story. A major conflict that defined an entire generation. A war that brought hints of how future wars may look like. 


I will skip Robert Massie's work on Catherine the Great for now, and come back to it after Crimean War, eventhough the chronological order is in reverse.

That said, I also bought the recently written work of Lawrence Freedman: Command: The Politics of Military Operations from Korea to Ukraine.

Will be reading this in parallel.
