“Fascinating … well-researched and equally well-written.” -Andrew Roberts, The Times

The 7th Earl of Cardigan will forever be remembered as the man who led the infamous Charge of the Light Brigade at Balaclava in 1854.

A fatal event for so many of his men, it was to rejuvenate Cardigan’s life.

Hitherto his career had been dogged by public scandal and professional disgrace: a failed marriage to a divorcee, two court appearances for adultery, two courts martials, numerous duels (which earned him the sobriquet “the homicidal earl”), and a state trial for intent to murder, but on his return from Balaclava, Cardigan was hailed as a hero.

But was Cardigan a hero?

Or was the fierce criticism of his conduct in the Crimea by fellow officers – that he treated horses badly and men worse – justified, and in keeping with his reprehensible past?

Casting Cardigan against the colourful backdrop of a country in the throws of social, political and economic revolution, Saul David unravels the enigma of this incorrigible, reprehensible and fascinatingly contradictory man, and brings him back to vibrant life.
