György Kmety (Ismail Pasha) was a Hungarian military expert who joined the Ottoman army and was known as Ismail Pasha.  He’s pictured here in the series of Roger Fenton’s photographs taken during the Crimean War (1853 – 1856), in what is called as the world’s first modern war.  Kmety led many successful campaigns with the Ottomans and published books documenting his experiences.  He later retired and moved to London where he died in 1865.
