Pressestimmen

" "Engrossing . . . In a book densely packed with incident, Figes highlights the influence of the press and the brutal casualties that the war produced . . . Could make a hardened war correspondent's blood run cold."--"The New Yorker" "Important and impressive . . . it is freshly informed by Russian sources, of which [Figes] is a master. . . . ["The Crimean War"] admirably narrates the saga in its international and religious setting."--Max Hastings, "New York Review of Books" "Meticulously researched . . . Comprehensive and compelling . . . Using a startling array of sources, from government records, news articles, and memoirs, to the letters of barely-literate soldiers, Figes deftly balances political, military, and social history . . . The chapters on the war itself are as gripping as an adventure novel . . . "The Crimean War" is an evisceration of war, a celebration of scholarship."--"Boston Globe" "Fascinating . . . Narrative history at its best, with patient unfolding of events unknown and forgotten--but that have consequences even today. A thoroughly impressive book."--"Kirkus," starred review "A lucid, thoroughly satisfying, definitive history."--"Publishers Weekly," starred review "Narrated in fearsomely vivid detail and with analytical precision . . . Figes restores historical significance and human suffering to the conflict."--"Booklist" Praise from the United Kingdom for "The Crimean War" "A wonderful subject, on every level, and with Orlando Figes it has found the historian worthy of its width and depth."--Norman Stone, "Standpoint" "Figes' new work will remind readers of his gifts, keen judgment and mastery of sources."--Max Hastings, "The Sunday Times" "This is the only book on the Crimean War anyone could need. It is lucid, well-written, alive and sensitive. Above all, it tells us why this neglected conflict and its forgotten victims deserve our remembrance."--Oliver Bullough, "The Independent" "Figes is a first-class historian. . . an excellent guide
