Khartoum 1885 : General Gordon's last stand by Donald F Featherstone( Book )

13 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Early in 1881, unrest in the Sudan began to crystallize around Mohammed Ibn Ahmed el-Sayyid Abdullah. Proclaiming himself the long-expected Madhi, the Guided One of the Prophet, he preached that the Sudan was to be purged of its Egyptian oppressors. Drawn in by the Egyptian failure to resolve the situation, the British sent General Gordon to organize an evacuation. On reaching Khartoum, however, General Gordon believed that he could reason with the Madhi. Instead of negotiating, the Madhi besieged the town for 317 days, ending in the fall of the city, and the death of Gordon, which has come to encapsulate the myth of the Imperial hero. This title details the campaign in context and, in particular, the battles fought by the British columns sent to relieve Khartoum."--Jacket

Tel El-Kebir 1882 : Wolseley's conquest of Egypt by Donald F Featherstone( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1881, the Egyptian army mutinied against the Khedive of Egypt and forced him to appoint Said Ahmed Arabi as Minister of War. In March 1882, Arabi was made a Pasha and from this time on acted as a dictator. Arabi's impassioned demands that the foreigners be driven out of Egypt and for the massacre of Christians prompted an armed British response, first in the form of a naval bombardment of Alexandria, and then as an expeditionary force under Lieutenant-General Wolseley. Sir Garnet Wolseley's campaign, completed in just four and a half weeks, was an almost "textbook" operation, carefully planned and executed with masterly competence."--Jacket
