Major-General Charles George Gordon, was known under many titles, Gordon Pasha, Chinese Gordon and Gordon of Khartoum; all of which stem from his long and distinguished service around the world in the British Army. In this biography, Lt.-General Butler charts Gordon's progress through the phases of his career with an expert attention to detail.Gordon saw his first active service in the merciless bloodbath of the Crimean war in which he distinguished himself and learnt many lessons on how not to conduct military operations. His military reputation gained further laurels in China, where he commanded the "Ever Victorious Army" during the Taiping rebellion to great success. His enduring fame, however, remains for his conduct in Egypt and the Sudan; he led the valiant garrison in the besieged city of Khartoum against the self-proclaimed Mahdi in 1884. He and the defenders gallantly held on for a year, gaining much public attention, but there was no relief force at hand and Gordon and as many as 10,000 inhabitants were brutally slaughtered. Gordon and his heroic stand at Khartoum are still remembered today and he still stands immortalized in many statues around the countries of the former British Empire.An excellent and well written biography

British future fiction( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the eight volumes of this edition I.F. Clarke presents readers with selected primary texts in the genre now generally known as future fiction. He begins with the anonymous Tory utopia, The Reign of George VI, 1900-1925 (1763). Volume by volume he reveals the entrance of new themes: coming wars, better future worlds, the marvels of engineering, the imminent triumph of women, and the end of the world. In linking passages between the selected entries he notes the changes -social, political, technological- that keep pace with the rapid development of the genre; and, in particular he shows how the unprecedented advances and inventions of the nineteenth century provided ideas and arguments for projections of world states, vast flying machines, perfectly planned cities, and universal peace. Decade by decade, mode by mode, the chosen texts introduce readers to the dominant characteristics of future fiction -a genre that can never stand still. There are the Darwinian expectations that look forward to evolutionary changes; the growing sense of human achievement that was the promise of greater things to come; the contemporary anxieties recurrent throughout the great technological nations that prompted tales of 'The Next Great European War'."--
