Weston was quoting from Churchill's 1899 book The River War, in which he wrote: "How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!

Here Sir Winston S. Churchill -- the same man who would go on to lead the free world through its darkest hours during the second world war -- tells the tale of the Anglo-Egyptian reconquest of the Sudan. It isn't just an account of the battles and the politics; it's the story of the destiny of the people of the region: Churchill with his powerful insight tells how the war changed the fates of England, Egypt, and the Arabian peoples in northeast Africa. In vivid style the book describes the background to the war, the relationship of the Upper Nile to Egypt, the murder of General Charles George Gordon in the siege at Khartoum, the political reaction in England, and Kitchener's elaborate preparations for the war. While in the Sudan, Churchill participated in the Battle of Omdurman. Churchill comments at length on the mechanisation of war with use of the telegraph, railroad, and a new generation of weaponry.

As always with Churchill's books, the English is a pleasure to read. Although, like most Englishmen educated through the 40's and 50's, I was perfectly aware of the Mahdi, Gordon's fate at Khartoum etc., I found this book to be an excellent study of the entire post Khartoum campaign. It is very detailed but clearly explained down to the unit level. It defines very well the Mahdi's cohorts and explains how the Dervishes organized themselves and fought with such fanaticism. For any History reader interested in that region it is a must.

This was a very detailed and informative book, written in an easy-to-read style. Over the years, I had only heard little smidgens about this war, so I was aware that it had occurred, but was unaware of how it evolved. Churchill gives details and nuances of the muslim combatants and is somewhat successful in describing their thought patterns and beliefs during this time. His descriptions of the Nile and the areas alongside the river are quite vivid. Equally vivid are his descriptions of how the masses were easily influence by the "Mahdi" and were happy to lay down their lives under the belief they'd be instantly transported to "Paradise" upon their death in battle, fighting for Allah at the behest of the "Mahdi." A good read.

I had watched the movie Khartoum many years ago with Charlton Heston. This books covers the events leading up to and after that event. Winston Churchill speaks from his own experience as a young officer that was involved in the final acts of this event in history. Well put together and an eerie view of our present situation in the middle east.

The Book provides a detailed description of a war that had no immediate effect on most of the world but was critical for the Sudan and Egypt. Since Churchill took part in the war, his personal account is complete and no doubt accurate. But as history, the author took pains to assemble information from all available sources and connect the details into a flowing narrative. The only difficulty I had with the story was the range of important characters on both sides and the names of the participants, save for the English military and civilian, were hard to pronounce correctly and remember.

Young Winston Churchill was a reporter in this bloody conflict in southern Egypt and the Sudan over a hundred years ago. His observations about the land and peoples he saw are priceless, if politically incorrect today. One gets a hint of the character of the man who would save England in WWII. Definitely a good book for both historical purposes and insight into one of the great men of the 20th century.

Sir Winston Churchill's writing style is easy to read. He tells it like it was. "The River War" is about Africa and the Upper Nile region in the late 1800's. While the cowboys were winning the American West, there were wars going on along the Nile that were vast in scope and that presaged the events now in progress in East Africa. The wars are a part of British History and are about the peoples of Africa and their character and their courage. This book is well worth reading.

Churchill gives a great account of Kitchner's expedition up the Nile and the battle that followed. He's a fine writer and as a participant, provides first hand accounts of the battle. The book also has many parallels to current events, showing how the British dealt with Islamic fundamentalism over 100 years ago.
A fantastic use of the English language to give a detailed description of a war of the late 1800s in which Churchill participated. He wrote this detailed war story in longhand. The only criticism is the lack of maps which would make it perfect. It should be read ( with map in hand) by anyone who want to understand today's conflicts in Sudan with jihad. Churchill was a great author as well as a statesman who led Britain during WWII. Reading this made me pick up "The Last Lion" Manchester and Reid's wonderful biography of Churchill during that war and until he died.
