¶ "William Howard Russell's despatches covering the Crimean war are one of the classics of war reporting as well as being a mine of source material for historians. More than this; they are in a great tradition of journalism, for it was through their publication in The Times that the British public was eventually made aware of the mismanagement of the army."
