9781332231553: A Personal Narrative of the Euphrates Expedition, Vol. 1 of 2 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from A Personal Narrative of the Euphrates Expedition, Vol. 1 of 2

So much has been said about the Euphrates Expedition and the Euphrates Valley Route, that it seems almost presumptuous to say in the present day that no fully detailed account of that Expedition has yet been given to the public.

But such is the case. General Chesney, in his anxiety to do justice to what had been accomplished under his inspiring influence, attempted too much. He embodied what was historical in a great work which embraced all that had preceded the Expedition in the annals of the countries explored, and in which the new facts obtained were buried in the vast mass of collected matter.

This was followed by an abbreviated narrative; but while doing justice to the part he took in inaugurating and carrying out the Expedition, it left very much to be desired in the matter of details.
