    They did very much so, and in fact their charge helped to win it as it disrupted the Russian batteries and demoralized the defenders of Stabastopol.

    The charge is now a staple in British lore of a few effecting the outcome of war through couragious scarifice.

    "Couragious Scarifice"? It was a fumbling mistake by the General Staff and garbled orders...and that cannot be abided, so make them martyr-like heros.
