    One thought on “A Brief History of the Crimean War: The Causes and Consequences of a Medieval Conflict Fought in a Modern Age”

    1. If you're going to read about the Crimean War, I guess you'd have to go with Troyle's mammoth version and bypass this one. I must have a different edition than the one featured here, because mine does not have "History's Most Unnecessary Struggle" on the front but something like "Causes and Consequences of a Medieval War fought in a Modern Age" (don't have the book on me now, but it is a mouthful). This is only important because as I was nearing the 200 page mark and the war still not declared, [...]

    2. A more accurately descriptive title would have been Causes of the Crimean War With a Few Notes on the Conflict. That said, I thought it was well worth the reading. I'm not a stranger to military history, but it was refreshing to forgo the battlefield details for a change. Troubetzkoy did a good job of setting the stage for the fight and, in this case, that was enough for me. I can't go along with his thesis that the Crimean War caused the major 20th century wars. I'd lay that blame more squarely [...]

    3. It's more concise and readable than the volume on the Hundred Years Warbut not quite up to the level of The Middle East volume, primarily due to lapses into dry details that could have been left on the shelf.

    4. If you're interested in what happened in the Crimea, you'll be disappointed. This is all about why it happened. Short summary: Europe was run by despots who were happy to throw away people's lives over diplomatic niceties. Long answer: it's complicated, petty, and I ended up not caring.
