Charge of the Light Brigade - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
That battle at Balaclava was a complete defeat of the British cavalry. But great propaganda maker the British are including Tennyson and later stories of orders misunderstood or bad generals etc. are cover up for the defeat.
They have made countless movies to explain their defeat. But defeat is a defeat, no matter how you tell it. It was British 1962 (Chinese defeating India) except Balaclava was much worst.
I wish Maxwell Neville wrote about their own national defeat instead of writing cock and bull stories of Indian defeat at the hand of Chinese in 1962.
To be fair, people believe him because he claims to have seen the Henderson Brooks report. GoI just release the damn report and be done with it

I would have liked the Russians to have won this war, if for nothing else than the shauenfreude value.
