Omdurman 1898: Kitchener's victory in the Sudan (Campaign, by Donald F. Featherstone

By Donald F. Featherstone

This quantity tells the tale of the conquest of the Dervish Empire, culminating at Omdurman in 1898: one of many nice barren region battles within the imperial drama of the Victorian period. This dramatic clash witnessed hordes of local warriors set opposed to British self-discipline and firepower, gunboats at the Nile, a dramatic cavalry cost and Kitchener, the Sirdar, as conqueror. This publication explores the occasions, weaponry and leaders of each side, and accompanying illustrations and vibrant photos convey the full crusade vividly to life.
