The Grand Crimean Central Railway, by Brian Cooke

The Grand Crimean Central Railway. The railway that won a war.
Brian Cooke

An account of one of the most extraordinary railways ever built.
During the war, when the British Army organisation collapsed, a civilian workforce of railway engineers and navies went to Balaklava and in a few short weeks built a railway that supplied the Army and was to play a crucial part in the course of the war. This book is a detailed picture of the railway – one of the little known features of the Crimean War and of the remarkable men who built and operated it.
