this book is really informative on the subject at hand.

This early men-at-arms book has long since been surpassed by more specific multiple titles on the Sudan Campaign. It is broad and general in its scope, though the color plates are useful. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0850452546, Paperback)

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.
