From Col C G Luton's Forword: ""When the Dervishes invaded Khartoum on 26 January 1885, General Gordon was killed, the Palace was burned and all documents in it were destroyed. Thes no detailed record of it has been available of Gordon's actions and thoughts between 14 Dec 1884 and 26 Jan, 1885. ""The author, son of the Lord Chancellor of England & nephew of Somerset Maugham, sets out to complete the General's many journals with this fictionalized account of his last 2 months. He gives a stark but moving picture of the seige of Khartoum and of the last tortured months of Gordon's life, and reveals a man unsure of his destiny as he was unsure of his sexual emotions.; 5.75 x 8.6 in.; 176 pages.
