£15.00 £4.00

Written by David Shimwell
The second book in the Cricket Witness series covers the playing of cricket during the Crimean War, looking at games which took place in Malta as the troops assembled, in camps in the Ottoman Empire as the troops were in transit to the Crimea, and during the engagements, the battles and siege of Sevastopol.
This book, deftly combining military and cricket history, provides a fascinating and original insight into cricket taking place in the mid-Victorian era.
