It is about the Anglo-Egyptian campaign in Sudan in 1896.

Looks like a fascinating book on a conflict with very little written (?) about!

I have been fascinated by both campaigns, 1885 and 1896, for a long time. I think it was the movie 'Khartoum' that did it.

Lord Wolseley wrote that he had met two men in his life that were greater than any others 'Chinese' Gordon and Robert E. Lee. Of the two he said Lee was the greater.

I even did a mod of the battle of Omdurman for one of the old SSG games.
