The desert battle of Omdurman in the Sudan on 2 September 1898 was seen as Britain's revenge for the death of Gordon at Khartoum. The most famous incident of the battle was the charge of the 21st Lancers - generally accepted as the last full cavalry charge. Three Victoria Crosses were awarded and the Queen granted her own name to the regiment.
This fascinating book, published to coincide with the centenary, tells for the first time the detailed story of the Lancer's bloody ride drawn from eyewitness letters of officers and men.RRP: £65
