For during the next twelve months, astounded alike at the seeming insanity of a government which had dispatched a solitary general on a mission which to all appearances would need a couple of armies and a highly trained civil service to carry through, and at the irrational self confidence of the man who had so readily accepted such unparalleled responsibilities, foreign spectators eagerly devoured first the romantic accounts of Gordon's spectacular career, which were headline news in every civilized country, and then the scanty and conjectural reports which filtered from the Sudan, as the slow tragedy of Khartoum drew towards its close. - p. 91712ocn464066384book18840.47Gordon, Charles GeorgeLettres de Gordon à sa soeur, écrites du Soudan; précédées d'une étude historique et biographique165ocn015039017book19000.84Gordon, Charles GeorgeGordon's campaign in ChinaHistory162ocn008205796book19290.70Gordon, Charles GeorgeCrooks of the underworld138ocn013187079book18850.29Gordon, Charles GeorgeJournals at Kartoum : printed from the original manuscripts245179ocn000390325book19180.37Strachey, LyttonEminent Victorians: Cardinal Manning, Florence Nightingale, Dr. Arnold, General GordonHistoryBiographyFor other editions, see Author Catalog+-+3241371065324143454ocn000407870book19180.32Strachey, LyttonEminent VictoriansHistoryBiographySourcesEminent Victorians is a groundbreaking work of biography that raised the genre to the level of high art.

In it, Strachey cleverly exposes the self-seeking ambitions of Cardinal Manning and the manipulative, neurotic Florence Nightingale; and in his essays on Dr Arnold and General Gordon, his quarries are not only his subjects but also the public-school system and the whole structure of nineteenth-century liberal values+-+176591421510727ocn673417644file20100.33Berenson, EdwardHeroes of empire five charismatic men and the conquest of AfricaHistoryBiographyDuring the decades of empire (1870-1914), legendary heroes and their astonishing deeds of conquest gave imperialism a recognizable human face. Henry Morton Stanley, Pierre Savorgnan de Brazza, Charles Gordon, Jean-Baptiste Marchand, and Hubert Lyautey all braved almost unimaginable dangers among "savage" people for their nation's greater good.

In Khartoum, General Gordon stands on the roof of his fortress as the city is besieged. He has vowed to fight the Mahdi to the death. At his side is the boy he rescued from the English dockyardslums - his reluctant last ally. Approaching with the Camel Corps is a young doctor who has joined the expedition to rescue Gordon. As the men make agonising progress across the desert, John Clarke struggles to be the hero of his imagining, while his abandoned wife, Mary, troubles his conscience. Back in London, as controversy rages over the expedition, Mary finds herself adrift and isolated. Her only release comes from laudanum, an addiction that will take her into Victorian London's darkest corners. An Honourable Man is a novel of extraordinary power that combines the intimate and the epic, exploring the folly of Empire through the fine grain of human experience and emotion31931ocn002640194book18810.76Forbes, ArchibaldChinese Gordon : a succinct record of his lifeHistoryBiography+-+3428467596324+-+3428467596324Fri Mar 21 16:03:57 EDT 2014batch49895
