The story of the Dervish leader Mohammed Ahmed, the defacement of whose grave by Kitchener's troops after the Battle of the Sudan was famously decried by Churchill in THE RIVER WAR. This is a good-very good First English edition copy, without dust jacket. The cloth is faded and stained, the contents are fine, with a vintage bookplate on the front pastedown.
Bibliographic numbers (in parentheses) are from Frederick Woods' original Churchill bibliography (Woods), as emended by Richard Langworth in his Connoisseur's Guide; and from the new, greatly expanded Churchill bibliography by Ronald Cohen (Cohen).
