This is the 3rd printing of this edition, and easily the scarcest of the 5 printings of this popular edition. The scarcity of this printing results in a premium and thus its appeal is primarily to completists. Those just wanting a readable early edition should look to the 1933, 1949, or 1951 printings. Similar in appearance to the 1933, the cloth is thinner and of different texture. Book is clean and unworn, good spine colour, some scattered spots on page edges, no names or inscriptions. Correct original dustwrapper is unclipped, but well worn with several ragged losses along edges to 26 mm depth. (ICS A2da.3) (ICS A2da.3). N° de ref. de la librería 25460

Churchill wrote this, his second book, while still an officer in the British army. Here he provides the history of the British involvement in the Sudan and the conflict between the British and Dervish forces. "The first object of this book is to relate in exact military detail the operations directed by Lord Kitchener of Khartoum on the Upper Nile from April 1896 to February 1899, which I have called 'The River War,' and which resulted in the reconquest of the Egyptian Soudan. But in order that the reader may understand, and even sympathise with the emotions which these events excited, I have prefixed a general survey of the geography, aspect, and history of the country, and have tried to show its connection with Egypt and Great Britain." - Preface.
