Abstract:

" James Thomas Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan Lieutenant-General James Thomas Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan Born 16 October 1797 Hambleden, Buckinghamshire, England Died 28 March 1868 (aged 70) Deene Park, Northamptonshire, England Allegiance United Kingdom Service/branch British Army Rank Lieutenant General Unit 8th King's Royal Irish Hussars 15th The King's Hussars 11th Hussars Commands held Light Cavalry Brigade Battles/wars Crimean War Battle of Balaclava Awards Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath Lieutenant General James Thomas Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan, KCB (16 October 1797 ? 28 March 1868), was an officer in the British Army who commanded the Light Brigade during the Crimean War. He led the Charge of the Light Brigade at the Battle of Balaclava. Throughout his life in politics and his long military career he characterised the arrogant and extravagant aristocrat of the period. His progression through the Army was marked by many episodes of extraordinary incompetence, but this can be measured against his generosity to the men under his command and genuine bravery. As a member of the landed aristocracy he had actively and steadfastly opposed any political reform in Britain, but in the last year of his life he relented and came to acknowledge that such reform would bring benefit to all classes of society."--Wikipedia.
