Russia was expanding into the Danube region — Romania today- which was under Turkish control. Therefore, Turkey and Russia went to war in , and the following year Britain and France — fearful of Russian expansion. Britain and France feared Russia would continue pushing down, and eventually come into British India through Afghanistan.

Thus, the assault ended with very high British casualties and no decisive gains. Published just six weeks after the event.

It was as if the soldiers were riding into the mouth of ferocious monsters that they could not escape from. The jaws of Death brings an image of inescapability the men had been gripped by a monster and Death was waiJng for them.
The mouth of Hell also brings an image of sheer horror. It is as if the earth has opened up to swallow the men they will die terribly.
