Jason linked to two parts of a three part series by Errol Morris about an iconic photograph taken during the Crimean War. (Part 1, Part 2). I read both posts on my ride to work and by the time I got into the office all I could think about was The Crimean war. Ooh, gotta get a book on the Crimean War! Reading all about the Crimean on Wikipedia. I'm crazy for the Crimean!

After visiting both Borders Books in Downtown SF I bought the last book between them on the subject. The last book between them turns out to be a condensed version which seems to be a good introduction based on the reader review. I'm hoping everyone read the Errol Morris posts and bought up all but one of the books on the subject—but I doubt it.
