Authoritative biography of a key figure written by a highly respected author with unrivalled access to family archives

In this critically acclaimed biography, fully updated, is supported by family papers. Royle revises Kitchener's latterday image to reveal a warm-hearted, tender and caring man capable of displaying great loyalty and love to those close to him. New light is thrown on his Irish childhood, his years in the Middle East and his attachment to the Arab cause, and on the infamous struggle with Lord Curzon over the army in India. In particular, Royle reassesses Kitchener's role in the Great War, presenting his phenomenally successful recruitment campaign – 'Your Country Needs You' – as a major contribution to the Allied victory and rehabilitating him as a brilliant strategist.
