iUniverse, Mar 6, 2000 - Fiction - 148 pages

A Holy War raged across Egypt. The Mahdi, fanatical prophet of Allah and leader of countless thousands of armed tribesman, was about to descend upon Khartoum – arsenal of Egypt, ruler of Sudan. In England Prime Minister Gladstone made a political decision: England had responsibilities in Egypt but he would not send British troops to defend the city. Instead he would sacrifice one man.

And so Gladstone sent General Charles George Gordon to Khartoum. Gordon, saviour of the Sudan, a man of righteous courage who would defy even the Prime Minister of England to rescue the people he loved, a man who had lived for them…and, if need be, would die for them…

Also a magnificent motion picture starring Charlton Heston and Laurence Olivier.
