Video Description


The ineptitude of the British high command led to a large number of deaths in its own army, most famously in the Charge of the Light Brigade. Florence Nightingale and her nurses strove to improve the appalling conditions in which the sick and injured were being treated and when news of the troops' suffering reached home, it brought about the government's downfall.
