The Dash for Khartoum

Mr. Henty is dealing with quite modern history in telling the story of the attempt to relieve Gordon at Khartoum, but better material for his pen he could scarcely have found throughout the annals of warfare. He does it every justice and produces a book containing solid information as well as a fictional interest which carries the reader with it to the end. This link for educational purpose only.

Khartoum is the capital of Sudan. It is located at the point where the White Nile meets the Blue Nile. This area is known as The Mogran. From here the Nile flows to the Mediterranean Sea. Muhammad Ali, the ruler of Egypt, founded the city in 1821. It quickly left the status of outpost becoming the center of trade and especially the slave trade. When the city was besieged by troops loyal to the Mahdi Muhammad Ahmad in 1884, the British defenders were led by General Gordon. Henty used his cast knowledge of this area in writing this story in which two boys accompany the expedition to rescue General Gordon from the besieged city.
