Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the Sudan in 1881 an obscure son of a carpenter pronounced himself the ‘Mahdi or ‘Guided One of the Prophet, the long-expected Messiah of the Islamic faith. His influence was so strong that Egypt (co-ruled by Britain and France) was plunged into war. Robert Wilkinson-Latham provides an absorbing account of the Sudan campaigns, including the siege of Khartoum, the unpredictable General Charles Gordon, and the Nile Expedition. The author details the organisation and fortunes of all forces involved, painting a fascinating picture of the place and its peoples from 1881-98.
