Pressestimmen

"This book presents a nice overview of the campaign... There are more detailed books that cover some of these operations, but none that cover the enter campaign and condense it as nicely." -Joe Kauffman, SITEO Newsletter (November 2007)

Synopsis

Illustrated with bird's-eye views, this book tells the story of General Charles "Chinese" Gordon's defence of Khartoum during the Mahdist revolt and the battles of the relief expedition that struggled to reach him.

5.0 von 5 Sternen General Charles (Chinese) Gordon's last stand 5. August 2012
Von E. Oxner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Donald Featherstone's historical review of Great Britain's war in the Sudan (1881-1898), with the support of David Chandler, head of the Department of War Studies of Britain's Royal Military Academy, was spectacular. I have studied the rise and fall of Mohammed Ibn Ahmed (the false Mahdi)relying on authors who experienced his despotic rule, but none have matched Featherstone's succinct history--and excellent maps--which in this volume is replete with many outstanding illustrations--sketches done by the few survivors of this unfortunate war.

My only small criticism is that his "Guide to Further Reading" did not include the authors, Colonel Slaton, Charles Neufeld, MD, & Rev. Father Ohrwalder--three unfortunate (but thankfully, survivors) of the Mahdi. He did include Lt. Col. Wingate's epic story "Mahdism and the Egyptian Sudan"(1891) which alone is most valuable reading.

For the history buff this 96-page treatise is truly a marvellous work of the turbulent story of the Sudan during the heydays of the Anglo-Egyptian period.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Coverage of the Entire Campaign 28. Mai 2010
Von Mike Dillemuth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book does an excellent job of covering the numerous battles fought by the British against the forces of the Madhi. In fact, only a small portion of the book is focused on General Gordon. The author, Donald Featherstone, covers the various campaigns that surround the British units in the Sudan. He provides a clear chronological narrative. This is not easy as there were widely disparate events such as the desert and river columns that attempted to reach General Gordon, the battles involving General Graham in the eastern Sudan, and Sir Charles Wilson's race up the Nile River to Khartoum.

The first third of the book is focused on the commanders, tactics, and weapons. The author then covers over seven major engagements. This is admirable given the limited amount of space available in Osprey books. The narrative is both clear and concise. Also, the maps make the battles very easy to visualize. In particular, the author included maps for the battles at El Teb, Abu Klea, Hashin, and Tofrik. The operations at Kirbekan, Khartoum, and Tamai are covered with 3D bird's eye maps. The most beneficial map is the overview of British operations in the Sudan from 1883 - 1885. This map significantly aids the reader in following the various campaigns.

Another positive aspect is that the book contains numerous drawings from that time period. These drawings were made by people involved in the various expeditions. They are located in the book, next to the applicable part of the narrative. This is notable as it is not always the case in some Osprey books. These drawings significantly add to the book and give the reader a sense of being there.

Bottom line: This book is well organized. The combination of a concise narrative, clear maps, and period drawings, make this an easy book to read. The reader should have no problem gaining a clear understanding of both the entire campaign and the specific battles.

4.0 von 5 Sternen More about the events ancillary to Khartoum than the actual battle itself but still good nevertheless 21. April 2009
Von Yoda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is much more about the events that were ancillary to the battle of Khartoum (i.e., actions of relieving columns, battles afterwards) than the actual battle itself. The book also does a good job at discussing the geopolitical situation leading to the battle, the English forces and their opponents, their strategies and fighting tactics and their leaders. Book is also well illustrated, especially in terms of troop illustrations and contemporary illustartions of ancillary battles.

The main weakness of the book, however, is its lack of discussion of the actual siege. Not only is the actual siege battle almost not discussed but little space is given to the strategies of each side in the siege, its forces and their strategies. Hence four stars instead of five.
