In detail: Charge of the Light Brigade
The charge

British commander Lord Raglan, standing above his cavalry, decided to attack the Russians on the Causeway Heights.

An order was sent but it was fatally misinterpreted, and 673 Light Brigade cavalrymen were sent charging down the valley with Russian guns all around.

The numbers are disputed, but between 100 and 200 are thought to have died.
