'Into The Valley Of Death: Crimea, Balaklava, The Light Brigade: Russell, Tennyson And Kipling' Summary
"Into the Valley of Death" is a phrase from the famous poem "The Charge of the Light Brigade" by Alfred Lord Tennyson. The poem is about the Battle of Balaklava during the Crimean War in 1854, where a British cavalry brigade charged into a valley against a heavily defended Russian position, resulting in heavy casualties. The poem is a commentary on the futility and heroism of the charge, and has become an iconic representation of the sacrifices made by soldiers in battle.
The battle of Balaklava is also depicted in works by other writers such as William Howard Russell, a war correspondent who covered the conflict for The Times and wrote one of the most detailed contemporary accounts of the battle and its aftermath.
Rudyard Kipling wrote a short story, "The Light That Failed," which was inspired by the Charge of the Light Brigade and the futility of war, it tells the story of a war artist who loses his sight in the battle and how his life changes.
All three authors' works are considered as important representation of the battle and its impact on the soldiers, the public and the literature.
