Amongst these was an ambitious, adroit officer Herbert Horatio Kitchener. In 1892, following several years distinguished service in Africa, Kitchener became a major-general in charge of the Egyptian army. His reorganisation and training of those forces over the next five years had one aim in view: the defeat of the Mahdi in the Sudan. In 1897, the author of this work joined Kitchener's troops as a correspondent as they began their first moves towards the 'pacification' of the Sudan. He describes in detail the various military undertakings of that expedition, culminating in a vivid and chilling description of the Battle of Omdurman at which the Mahdi's rule was finally ended.
