It describes Gordon, "the inner man" as well as the outer man, and his exploits in the Sudan and Darfur. It includes 4 pages of a facsimile letter from Gordon, with a sketch outlining his.   On reaching Khartoum however, General Gordon believed, incorrectly, that the Madhi could be reasoned with. Instead of negotiating, the Madhi besieged the town for days. This title looks in particular, although not exclusively, at the battles fought by the British columns sent to relieve : Bloomsbury Publishing.

Gordon was a frustrated idealist; he was a man who distrusted everyone and didn't know his own erratic and stubborn .Here is a full-length, full dress, complete biography of Charles George Gordon, the soldier-saint of the British Empire at its dazzling 19th century peak. It should completely replace the portrait in Strachey's debunking Eminent Victorians and equally the slickly popular Chinese Gordon of recent vintage.

This is a fine piece of scholarship, of historical and psychological research.
