Raglan was commander of the British forces in the Crimea. He had served heroically under Wellington, losing his right arm at Waterloo, but had never before commanded troops in the field. At first successful, he was ultimately blamed for the sufferings of the British troops and their heavy losses. He died of dysentery on 28 June 1855 before he could see the Siege of Sebastopol successfully concluded.
