About this Item

First Edition. Narrative of conditions in the Soudan after the Mahdist rebellion. Includes the account of Hewett's mission to Abyssinia. Soiled covers. Cracked hinges. Binding tight, text clean. Missing the map. Vol 2 missing the front free page. Foxing. Very readable copies. Muhammad Ahmad now called himself Mahdi, i.e. "he who is guided in the right way". He proclaimed Jihad, a Holy War against the hated Egyptians. His dervish army was successful. In spite of antiquated weapons and obsolete tactics the fanatic and religious devotion paid off. The Egyptian garrisons were forced to surrender and were captured one after another. Mahdi?s and Abdullah?s Holy War was a struggle for freedom. Their religion was radical Islamic fundamentalism.
