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 remarkably clean, bright, tight and unfoxed First American edition copy, in an unclipped dust jacket.
A rare book very rarely seen thus.
