  • Another example of english history make their bravery myth on Turk blood Few hundred Turk resist against 25.000 russian in 3 hour(brits said coward Turks runaway) When russian cavalry fought with scots,defenders mostly Turks not scots(brits ony mentioned about scots) Overrated 670-man light brigade who actualy lost 100 man and rest runaway(brits said 600 of them died) More sad part is that 600 man who died was casuality of Turk battalions

  • In the movie Ghandi, protesting mine workers lie down in a snug formation in order to keep an incoming force of light police cavalry from breaking through. Would that actually deter a horse from stepping through a crowd?

  • Its the horses i feel sorry for! If men want to kill each other thats fine with me but dont drag the poor horses through all that terifying explosions from cannons and rifles!! I was really happy when tanks were invented and horses were stopped being used as running cannon foder! People like captain nolan that wrote books on cavelry warfare will have probably not given a toss about how many horses were slaughterd in suicidal charges for glory, selfish basterds!

    • @Evil Limey i care about animals now and then! Makes no difference when, im voicing my anger at how humans treat animals! I personally dont care for people im a 100% animal lover and id rather see my own speicies go extinct than all the animal kingdoms! We are nothing but a virus to this planet, we move in take over destroy the previous eco system use all its resouces all while multiplying at an unsustainable level then move on to the next!! And we as humans actually have the cheek to cull other speicies for doing the exact same things! We would class them as an invasive spiecies when we are the worst! Like i said the human race has become a virus to this planet!! There you go how was that for outrage!! Ps dont reply im not interested in some back n forth slanging match

  • The Charge of the Light Brigade I Half a league, half a league, Half a league onward, All in the valley of Death    Rode the six hundred. “Forward, the Light Brigade! Charge for the guns!” he said. Into the valley of Death    Rode the six hundred. II “Forward, the Light Brigade!” Was there a man dismayed? Not though the soldier knew    Someone had blundered.    Theirs not to make reply,    Theirs not to reason why,    Theirs but to do and die.    Into the valley of Death    Rode the six hundred. III Cannon to right of them, Cannon to left of them, Cannon in front of them    Volleyed and thundered; Stormed at with shot and shell, Boldly they rode and well, Into the jaws of Death, Into the mouth of hell    Rode the six hundred. IV Flashed all their sabres bare, Flashed as they turned in air Sabring the gunners there, Charging an army, while    All the world wondered. Plunged in the battery-smoke Right through the line they broke; Cossack and Russian Reeled from the sabre stroke    Shattered and sundered. Then they rode back, but not    Not the six hundred. V Cannon to right of them, Cannon to left of them, Cannon behind them    Volleyed and thundered; Stormed at with shot and shell, While horse and hero fell. They that had fought so well Came through the jaws of Death, Back from the mouth of hell, All that was left of them,    Left of six hundred. VI When can their glory fade? O the wild charge they made!    All the world wondered. Honour the charge they made! Honour the Light Brigade,    Noble six hundred!

  • It should be mentioned that Nolan was trying to stop the charge, drawing his sword to signal the order the stand down the shell burst shrapnel nailed him before he could sweep sword right signaling a premature charge, i est around 30% of casualties due to exhausted horse, heart attacks ect. feeling cheated of any glory those riders fought on till there demise, many prisoners were taken. The 30 year rivalry was, I believe, used as a scapegoat for losing their most glorious cavalry regiment.

  • A derivative poem, "Forward the Light Brigade, Valiant, but betrayed, Death on the field of strife, Death in the bright air, Theirs was the broken key, Theirs was the grim duty, Theirs was eternity, Lance beyond repair. Beehive and grapeshot raked them, Minee Balls berated them, Ripples of thunder, Hurricanes of lead, Till all their leaders dead, Into the histories, Into immortal frieze, Earning the heroes' share." -WBC And a bon mot:
