Summary "In the early 1880s Muhammad Ahmed unleashed a spectacularly successful jihadist uprising against Egyptian colonial rule in the Sudan. By the spring of 1884 Cairo had bowed to British pressure to withdraw. This book describes how Major General Charles Gordon was dispatched to evacuate Khartoum and turn the Sudan over to self-rule, goes on to explain how and why the Gordon mission backfired, and then homes in on Sir Garnet Wolseley's planning and execution of the long-delayed Gordon Relief Expedition, which arrived only two days after the city had fallen and Gordon had been killed"--Back cover.
