Few wars in history reveal more confusion of purpose or have had greater unintended consequences. I get distrustful of history books that tell me in one paragraph how weak and terrible the French navy is, but then in the very next one, how Britain had to hustle to the Black Sea because France was doing such a great job on the blockade and they might steal all the glory. 6) Don't make amazing claims and then not back it up! In one spot, the author says that the Franco-Prussian War, World War I, and World War II originated from the Crimean War. Well, if that's the case, not really History's Most Unnecessary Struggle.
However, the book entitled 'The Crimean War' spends comparatively little time talking about the events that occurred during the actual war.

There is an excellent build up to the war, and a good followup summarizing the consequences of the war, but the discussion of the war itself (which is the main point of the book) is disappointingly brief. Yes, this book dedicate half of its pages to explain the causes of this war, which was more an arm wrestle between imperial forces, though on a very strategic location for British purposes of the time

The Crimean War was a medieval conflict fought in a modern age. But what is rarely appreciated, and what this historical examination shows, is that this extraordinary and costly struggle was fought not only in the Crimea, but also along the Danube, in the Arctic Ocean, in the Baltic and Pacific. Few wars in history reveal greater confusion of purpose or have had richer unintended consequences. Much has been written about this most senseless of wars and this new history does not aim to cover old ground.
Few wars in history reveal greater confusion of purpose or have had richer unintended consequences. Instead, it traces the war's causes and sketches a vivid picture of the age which made it possible, up until the moment of the Allies' departure for the Crimea.

Alexis Troubetzkoy, another Crimean scholar, pithily titled his history of the war as a ‘medieval conflict fought in a modern age’. 2 This perhaps best encapsulates the Zeitgeist of the period and the character of the conflict- it truly was a transformative period for society and for the art of warfare. It was a peculiar war that saw as many ‘firsts’ as it did ‘lasts’. The historical significance of the Crimean War is also obscured by what Royle saw as history’s bad joke- the bewildering aspects of the war have often masked its larger importance in the development of modern warfare.
