This Life of Field-Marshal Lord Kitchener was originally written in 1901, during the progress of the South African War. With the exception of a little pocket volume in a bijou series , there was then no book on the subject, the information relating to the great soldier’s career being embodied in such works as Mr. Winston Churchill’s River War, and details as to his personal life in its earlier stages were scanty and obtained only with difficulty. The book, therefore, could claim to meet a widespread want and was well received.
It has now been fully revised by the author and the narrative extended to cover the period that has elapsed since it was first written. The publishers are confident that the complete story thus presented will be even more acceptable to a public which realises at this critical time the unique capacity of its new Minister for War.
