1 Soyer, Alexis A Culinary Campaign
1870962117 / 9781870962117 New
(1856) reprint 1999. 25cm. Pp.356. 20 engravings. Hardbound.

A Culinary Campaign is Alexis Soyer Soyer's brilliant memoir, published in 1856 and, until now, never since reprinted. A vivid account of the Crimean War and of Soyer's inventions and recipes for feeding armies in the field. He was as important in the Crimea as Florence Nightingale, for his influence on the reform of army feeding enabled wounded soldiers to survive. A modified version of the Soyer stove was still in use in the Gulf War. Introductions by Elizabeth Ray and military historian Michael Barthorp.
