Verified Purchase
Was extremely pleased I bought this book. A family ancestor fought and died in this conflict and the experiences and descriptions by the author (writing from his own personal involvement) brought our young soldier's world to life. It is written with stylish simplicity which enhances the impact of the fighting and the horror of such battles. I thoroughly recommend it.

An intriguing account of the part played by the Camel Corps in the 1885 expedition mounted - too late, in the author's opinion - by the Gladstone Government in the forlorn hope of saving Khartoum from the forces of the Mahdi, and rescuing General Gordon. Gleichen was an aristocratic officer of the Grenadier Guards seconded - to his great joy - to the Camel Corps from garrison duty in Dublin. His book is a record of battles fought and won, of dangers run and difficulties overcome - and of ultimate frustration when the `worst possible news' arrives of Gordon's death. En route the reader learns a great deal about the behaviour and management of camels. With four appendices on the Camel Corp's composition and losses, and illustrated with the author's own talented and witty drawings and a map.
