The prime villain of the book, David Urquhart, was the most rabid of the British Russophobes; as Figes acknowledges, "no writer did more to prepare the British public for the Crimean War." The 19th-century Scottish counterpart to today's Russo- and Serbophobic neocons, Urquhart started out as a pamphleteer promoting friendship with the Turks and war with Russia.
Of all the Victoria Crosses awarded for the Crimean War, only 22 of them such as Knox's were for two or more actions.
The monument in Devnya seems perplexing from another point of view as well a it fails to mention the French casualties that shared the fate of the British soldiers in the Crimean War near Varna.
She includes above these two pages two illustrations of Russell, a photograph by Roger Fenton, whose Crimean War photographs deserve more general attention than she gives them, and a Punch cartoon of him years later in 1881 by Sambourne who called Russell 'The Man for the Times'.
The Museum is independent and has over 2,000 artefacts owned by and associated with Florence Nightingale, the Crimean War, nursing and Florence Nightingale's legacy.

Seacole, the black Jamaican "heroine" of the second chapter, is similarly "a transatlantic traveler of the Americas" who significantly intervenes within and reconfigures "discourses of war, medicine, and imperialism on both sides of the Atlantic." Fish situates Seacole within a tradition of travel writing and the history of Western mercantilist endeavors in the geographical contact zones of the Central and South American Gold Rush frontier and the Crimean War in the 1840s-50s.
