This volume tells the story of the conquest of the Dervish Empire, culminating at Omdurman in 1898: one of the great desert battles in the imperial drama of the Victorian era. This dramatic conflict witnessed hordes of native warriors set against British discipline and firepower, gunboats on the Nile, a dramatic cavalry charge and Kitchener, the Sirdar, as conqueror. This book explores the events, weaponry and leaders of both sides, and accompanying illustrations and colourful graphics bring the whole campaign vividly to life.

"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 entire campaign and condense it as nicely." -Joe Kauffman, "SITEO Newsletter" (November 2007) This book presents a nice overview of the campaign...
