The Charge of the Light Brigade
In this satirical account of wartime during the ill-fated charge of British troops at Balaclava in the Crimean War, loyal soldiers blindly followed orders which were led to certain death. Snobbish aristocrats and ineffectual politicos combine with pompous blue-bloods to make decisions affecting 600 men thousands of miles away.
