1 Featherstone, Don. (Donald). General editor David G. Chandler. KHARTOUM 1885: GENERAL GORDON'S LAST STAND. OSPREY MILITARY CAMPAIGN SERIES 23.
London Osprey 1993 185532301X / 9781855323018 First Edition Soft Cover Very Good+ Cilla Eurich. 
96 pp, large 8vo (9 11/16" H). Profusely illustrated in color and b&w with photos, maps, battle plans, reproductions, uniform studies. "The fall of Khartoum and the death of General Gordon at the hand of the Mahdi's army constituted one of the most colourful and controversial episodes of Britain's military history - a seemingly unfeeling Imperial government had 'let down' one of the nation's heroes. Here, Donald Featherstone, well known for his many books on military subjects and wargaming in particular, focuses especially on the battles fought by the relief columns." "The Osprey Campaign Series presents concise, authoritative accounts of the great conflicts of history. Each volume begins with an assessment of each commander's campaign stragegy, then recounts the progress of the fighting, blow-by-blow. More than 90 illustrations, including maps, charts and colour plates accompany the text, and a series of three-dimensional battle maps mark the critical stages of the campaign. Each volume concludes with a brief guide to the battlefield today, and detailed notes for wargamers." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - area of faint dis-coloration of two title letters on front cover.
