OFH Throwback- Episode #31- What Was the Charge of the Light Brigade?

In this throwback episode we revisit Episode #31 from Season 2. The Crimean War cavalry action known as "the charge of light brigade" was immortalized by the poet Alfred Lord Tennyson. The poet described a glorious charge into the mouth of hell carried out by men who would sooner die than disobey their orders. But is any of this actually true? What was the real charge of the light brigade? Why has one of history's biggest military blunders been remembered so fondly? Tune in and find out how the sick man of Europe, being "sporting", and a whole lot of donkeys play into the story.
