Kitchener: Architect of Victory, Artisan of Peace
by John Pollock
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0786710012, Paperback)
With access to the private papers of the heroic Kitchener of Khartoum—victor of the Battle of Omdurman and avenger of the disastrously massacred General Gordon—this definitive biography, including 32 pages of black-and-white photographs, charts the illustrious, and sometimes infamous, career of the man who fought his last battles in the corridors of international power during World War I. It also finds beyond the formidable public figure a shy, reserved Christian man capable of great compassion and humanitarian vision. “An engaging narrative that brings the colorful, late-Victorian military and political world vividly to life.”—Kirkus Reviews “Pollock describes this amazing career with talent and passion. His book is well-written, lively, thoroughly researched....”—Financial Times
