GLADSTONE, GORDON AND THE SUDAN WARS The Battle over Imperial Intervention in the Victorian Age

£19.99 £2.00

A radical, revisionist examination of one of Victorian Britain’s military legends: the death of General Gordon at Khartoum in 1885. Author Fergus Miller concludes that Prime Minister Herbert Gladstone – much vilified for allegedly abandoning Gordon to his fate – was correct in seeking to stay out of the Sudan, while Gordon himself was an unstable loose cannon largely responsible for his own demise. Controversial yet authoritative, this book lets you make up your own mind.
