Synopsis: 137 letters written by George Frederick Dallas to his relatives and friends during his time on active service in the Crimean War, presented by his great-great-grandson Michael Hargreaves Mawson. "Fred" Dallas, Company Commander of the 46th Regiment of Foot, who miraculously escaped any serious injury during the prolonged campaign, described his first enthusiasm , followed within weeks of arriving by descriptions of his disbelief at the misjudgement of leading officers, the poor preparation, the divided command,and the appalling conditions of the Crimean Winter. He records the unremitting struggles of the battle, the bravery of his comrades, the confusion, the mistakes, the horrific injuries and the ever wearying cold. The letters record incidents of fighting elsewhere, including the Charge of the Light Brigade at Balaclava; and the quieter moments at camp, the friendships between the men, and surprisingly humourous and colourful anecdotes.
