Jihad! Battle for The Sudan

By (author) Colquhoun, Ian

2013 is the 130th anniversary of the Battle of Shaykan, the Sudanese people's great victory over their British-led Egyptian-Ottoman occupiers' army, a victory which was part of the first modern jihad, which eventually saw The Sudan become the only African country to win its freedom from colonial oppression by force of arms alone. 2015 is the 130th anniversary of the Battle of Abu Klea and the fall of Khartoum. 2018 is the 120th anniversary of The Sudan's re-conquest by Anglo-Egyptian forces at the Battle of Omdurman. This swashbuckling novel is set against the backdrop of these pivotal events, events which share many similarities with current 'Western' interventions in the Middle-East. A revamping of the old style frontier yarns - filled with bullets, swords, bayonets, politics and courage.
