British Military Intelligence in the Crimean War, 1854-1856 Summary

British Military Intelligence in the Crimean War, 1854-1856 by Stephen M. Harris

This is a study of the British military intelligence operations during the Crimean War. It details the beginnings of the intelligence operations as a result of the British Commander, Lord Raglan's, need for information on the enemy, and traces the subsequent development of the system.

Table of Contents

Cryptologia- " an excellent book with 11 organisational charts of intelligence units, four maps, an extensive bibliography including archival sources plus a competent index."



The Journal of Military History

"Stephen Harris"s book is the most formidable and scholarly account yet written about British intelligence operations in the Crimean War. The basic conception is original and interesting; the issues are real and clearly conceived; the sources used unrivalled in extent; and the entire treatment rests on an exceptional combination of perspicacity and sensitivity, both of thought about, and feeling for, intelligence operations."



Soldiers of the Queen, Vol. 98 (Sept. 1999)

"Attractively produced ... it is an interesting and competent work and is definitely recommended to all students of the Russian war."



Choice, Vol. 37, No. 2, Oct. 99

"Harris ... has done an excellent job of analyzing and comparing the various intelligence reports available to Lord Ragland and his successor in the Crimea."



RUSI Journal, Feb 2000

"This admirable, slim book has a simple thesis ... The book is a welcome revision of the stereotype of British intelligence buffoonery. For military historians it contributes to the changing views of Crimean generalship ... But the book is full of material with a bearing on modern intelligence doctrine."



The International History Review, Vol 22, No 2, June 2000

"Harris has done a careful and commendable job."



Indiana University Victorian Studies

"Harris"s specialized study is competently written and well-researched
