The Crimean War (October 1853 – February 1856) was a conflict between the Russian Empire and an alliance of the French Empire, the British Empire, the Ottoman Empire, and the Kingdom of Sardinia. The war was part of a long-running contest between major European powers for influence over territories of the declining Ottoman Empire. Most of the conflict took place on the Crimean peninsula, but there were smaller campaigns in Eastern Anatolia, Caucasus, the Baltic Sea, the Pacific Ocean and the White Sea. In Russia, this war is also known as the "Eastern War" (Russian: война, Vostochnaya Voina), and in Britain it was also called the "Russian War" at the time.

The Crimean War is known for logistical and tactical errors during the land campaign on both sides (the naval side saw a successful Allied campaign which eliminated most of the ships of the Russian Navy in the Black Sea). Nonetheless, it is sometimes considered to be one of the first "modern" wars as it "introduced technical changes which affected the future course of warfare", including the first tactical use of railways and the electric telegraph. It is also famous for the work of Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole, who pioneered modern nursing practices while caring for wounded British soldiers.

The Crimean War was one of the first wars to be documented extensively in written reports and photographs: notably by William Russell (writing for The Times [of London] newspaper) and the photographs of Roger Fenton. News from war correspondents reached all nations involved in the war and kept the public citizenry of those nations better informed of the day-to-day events of the war than had been the case in any other war to that date. However, nowhere more than Britain was the public kept better informed of the day-to-day realities of the war in the Crimea. Consequently, public opinion played a larger role in this war than in any other war in history. Furthermore, the advent of steamships and the telegraph meant that news from the war zone in the Crimea sped its way to western Europe and London in five days. After the French extended the telegraph from Bucharest to Varna on the coast of the Black Sea during the winter of 1854, the news reached London in two days. Then, when the British laid an underwater cable from Varna across the Black Sea to their supply port on the southern coast of the Crimean peninsula in April 1855, news from the front reached London in a few hours. The relatively instantaneous news created a real "patriotism" among the middle classes of England which brought down the coalition Aberdeen government and brought Lord Palmerston into office as Prime Minister.
