An insightful read that almost takes you back a hundred years to an era where Britain's influence hovered between the British Isles, India and Africa, while reaching beyond to Australia, New Zealand and Canada. It was a world power - a manufacturing powerhouse with a huge geographical spread, held together by a navy that ruled all oceans and colonial administrators who, like Kitchener, we raised and lived for much of their careers, 'in the colonies' or protectorate. Reading this your perspective on the First World War puts you somewhere above the Mediteranean looking east to Egypt and the Arabs under Ottoman rule, north to the Dardanelles and north west to the most important front of them all between Flanders and the Somme.

An superbly researched and meticulously detailed account 8 Aug. 2004
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Kitchener's War: British Strategy From 1914 To 1916 by George H. Cassar (Professor of Military and Modern European History, Eastern Michigan University) is an superbly researched and meticulously detailed account of Horatio Herbert Kitchener who recruited a British force of almost three million men to defeat German's ambitions and defend British interests in the first two years of World War I. To this purpose Kitchener also supplied armaments to the Russian army while pursuing a policy of careful attrition in France. Drawing upon unpublished sources ranging from government documents to private papers of generals and politicians, Professor Cassar brings a fresh and more complete understanding to Kitchener's controversial role in the Dardanelles campaign, the Arab revolt against Turkey, British operations in Africa, and his relations with colleagues and Allied leaders. No personal or academic World War I Military Studies collection can be considered complete or comprehensive without the inclusion of George H. Cassar's Kitchener's War!
